Don't know much about this car but know something about how cars work so I'm giving it a shot. Does the coil have power to it? If it has power then you may have a ground issue or the computer simply isn't commanding it in. An open in the ground circuit would impede the computer from controlling the coil. Make sure there's power to coil though. Good luck to you!

    By the way try taking a coil from a different cylinder and changing it with the one that isn't working. If the problem follows the change then you have a bad coil. If it doesn't you need to look at wiring, and the computer.

What causes mis firing on opel astra estate 160i 1997 models


It could be anything from a bad spark plug wire, bad coil, bad valve, bad fuel injector, vacuum leak, or other electrical or mechanical issue. Have you done anything to attempt to fix the issue such as performing a tune up, checking the compression on the misfiring cylinder, or swapping spark plugs or spark plug wires between cylinders to see what the misfire follows?

Opel monza gsi E16ES ECU pinout diagram


Unlikely this is being caused by ECU. Not impossible, but unlikely. For poor spark, ECU has nothing to do with this. Check ignition module/coil. For overfueling, bad spark can prevent burning fuel properly, but leaking fuel injectors or bad coolant temp sensor more probable.

Opel monza gsi E16ES ecu pinout wiring diagram


The ecu doesn't control the power of the spark, only where it goes at a particular time. The coil/s, plugs, wires, cap and rotor do though.

Opel ignition problem car wont start


does the igniton switch turn or if dont your gonna have to replace it if the switch turns and it trys to start most likely the distributor is bad somewhere could be the pickup coil could be the ignition module get a new distributor and hope that your ignitio coil is still good if not then get a new coil and you may as well buy spark plug wires and spark plugs

Wiring from coil to distributor for opel monza 1989


Sadly this is a USA site... and Opel data seems to be pretty scarce on your car...

Simply (generally)... You are looking to see steady battery on your coil.. as the distributer turns it SHOULD BE interrupting ground...

and generating a PRETTY POWERFUL spark...

Use a volt meter and measure for battery = good.

... no battery... back up to the BALAST RESISTOR (if equipped)... measure for battery...
Only now do you need to know the circuit back to your starter switch ("B" and "S" leads).

ELSE...
If you have a clever (preferably smaller/tool (we'll call SPARKY)) assistant... you can convince to hold the spark lead REALLY REALLY close to the spark plug... If SPARKY sees (or feels) a spark move on to the FUEL... FILTER & PUMP.

Sparky would be smarter to pull out the center wire of the distributor cap... that way less likely your assistant will get ENERGIZED...

No spark = possibly bad distributor or coil

Now disconnect the ground side and manually apply rapid ground... test for spark = good coil

Still no spark = bad coil,

There is a tool for that (I'll post it below)...

Now no spark = clean/replace points (& capacitor) or
replace inductor!!

1996 Opel Kadett/Astra 200i no power to ignition coil


do you have coil trigger on either wire to the coil? if so then apply 12 volts to the other wire to see if car will start.
