Suggest you check the wiring harness for continuity.
(Unplugged from ECM, of course!)

These wiring harnesses have a bad rep for intermittent breaks, in the wires of the harness. You have to wiggle the harness while running a continuity check, (Multimeter set to OHMS), otherwise the break/s may not show up.

Yes, I know where that harness is located. No, it's not Even going to be fun to remove, and check this harness!

I had to do this with a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville, with a 3.8L engine, not too long ago. Everything had to be removed, on the front of the engine, Including the water pump, in order to extract this harness.

Made me SO happy! (I still get the 'Giggles' when I think about it!!)

06 town and country no spark on 3 and 6

the PCM grounds the coil to produce spark. You can use a scan tool (not a code reader) to energize the individual coils while monitoring the circuit with a volt meter or a test light. If the PCM is supplying ground to the 2/5 and 1/4 coil but not the 3/6 coil than you know you either have a wiring issue between the pcm and the coiul pack or the pcm is bad.

What color are the wires from the ECM to the coil pack and which one are the driver for coil b

The power scorce isn't the ECM .Test another coil for 12 volts key on run the configuration of the wires in side the connecters will be the same .Then see what is hot in coil B connector if you have the same voltage and tests the same then the coil pack is likely the problem but test the grounds on B and check the main wire OHMS before you start spending money

Replaced ignition coil on 2005 town and country. It keeps shorting out on the #4. What could be causing this? Someone suggested ECM. What can you tell me about this

You need to have a repair shop with the proper
test equipment & knowledge, find a problem,anything

You listen to no one

Someone suggesting an ECM most likely never worked
on any vehicle in their life

Your doctor doesn't ask questions or guess,they do testing
to find problems,the same with any vehicle

You can not make a statement about something shorting out
Most folks don't even know what that means

When you come here, have OBD Codes & test results, to
support your statements,& details of the initial problem &
how it was diagnosed, in detail

OBD Codes have nothing to do with the need to install parts

No parts go in, until a parts fails a test & is related to the problem

Coil has no spark on 1 & 4 replaced coil, crank sensor and cam sensor

Hello! Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) on, indicating a stored fault code? Since you have installed a new Coil I would suggest having a look at the wiring to the coil's connector...1&4 are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) on the Dark Blue/Dark Green wire...Visually inspect the connector, pins and wiring at the Coil end...If you have a multimeter and a wee bit of knowledge of its use the wire can be tested with a voltmeter...With engine running, measure the voltage on the following wire colors of the coil connector... Dark Blue/Orange...Dark Blue/Tan, and the suspect wire, Dark Blue/Dark Green...All three should read the same...There is a fourth wire in the connector (Brown White)...It is the input ground from the Engine Oil Pressure Switch and must be present...

Without a meter the best you can do is to inspect the connector...It is not as rare as you may think that you replaced a bad Ignition Coil with another bad Ignition Coil...Send a comment...

Where is the voltage regulator on a 2005 chrysler town and country

The VR is integral to the powertrain control module (PCM). Are you having trouble with the alternator voltage?

Hi - We have been told that we have to replace the powertrain control module on our 2005 Escape, as well as 6 coils. We've been given the cost of $800 for the control and $115 for each coil. This sound...

I have a hard time believing all coils have to be replaced. Was this a Ford dealer or an independent that told you this? I would seriously get a second opinion.

Also, if you have any trouble codes, please post them here or look them up

No start

Is there suffecient voltage going INTO the PCM? Does the CHECK ENGINE light come on with the key? Does the fuel pump run?
