Most likely damaged the ignition module during tests. Are you getting a pulsing wire to the coil on the signal wire? For starters check the ignition fuse first.

How do i put new coilpacks on my 2003 trailblazer?

Hello Deborah,

Place a spark tester on your coil lead to test for spark.

If you have fuel pressure, reasonable compression and a spark your engine should at least try to start.

Why did you replace the coil packs in the first place? and did your vehicle run before the swap?

No spark! replaced the crank position sensor, plugs, wires, ignition control modual. had the coil packs checked all ok.

This sounds like a bad computer, if your sure the coilpacks are good and you replaced the module and the new module is good and the wiring to the module is good then i would say the wiring to computer or bad computer, this module and coils are hidden in the rear of the motor and go bad often but if say there all good then my next step would be the computer,

Have no spark,fuel is flowing,car is cranking, but no spark to coilpacks. I there a relay,or switch/fuse that may be bad? Thanks!

Underneath the coil packs the is the ignition module. You can remove this by removing the coil packs and it can be tested at an Autozone or Advanced auto if one is available near you. Make sure when testing this they do it several times because typically they show failure results after they are heated.

To check the coilpack just get a test light ground it some where on the block then press the the test light on the head of each wire at the coilpack. You should hear a change in the way the car idles, if you get to one of the wires and the idle does not change, that is the cylinder that is giving you the problem; but it could be dead cylinder and not the coil pack.

In other words...
1. Set the dial on your voltmeter to "Ohms."
2. Touch one of the leads on the voltmeter to one of the electrical terminals on the coil pack. There are two terminals: one on the top of the coil pack and one on the bottom. It does not matter which lead from the voltmeter touches which terminal on the coil pack. Then, touch the other lead on the voltmeter to the other terminal on the coil pack.
3. Check the resistance. The display on the voltmeter should read between "0.0" and "0.05" Ohms. If it reads higher than "0.05" Ohms, then you need to replace the coil pack.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.

1998 Buick Lesabre How do you test the coil packs?

the coils are one integrated block with 3 separate segments. the coil pack is mounted to the ignition module and can be unbolted from each other. one can test the coils from the underside of the coilpack with a dvom. having said that your car should still start if one paired coil fails, it would however miss on one or two cylinders. I would suggest to scan for codes, monitor live sensor data to see if you have a valid crank signal, check fuel pressure and spark voltage

I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
