Check that the immobiliser is operational. Check that power is getting to the coil ( ign fuse ). Check power from run position on the ignition switch to coil.

    All ASD relays and fuses are good. New Ignition Coil, New Cam and Crankshaft sensors.

    If the power is getting to the coil(12 volts or 7.5 volts depending on the coil specs coil) check that you are getting power out of the coil to the ignition module in the distributor . That unit may be faulty and not creating the pulse at the correct timing to induce the high voltage from the coil to the plugs.

SOURCE: replace crankshaft sensor

Crank sensor on that car should be located near the pulley end of the motor, and near the firewall side. Fairly easy to get to.

The motor is gone and the switch could be gone too.

I would replace both to be on the safe side.
The switch is not that expensive. The motor is more expensve.

I have power to my coil but none coming out on my 84 351 Windsor brand new distributor coil is good module came on new distributor I need help ?

Since the coil is getting power you need to get a spark tester or pull a cord of one spark plug and lay it on the engine and have some crank the engine. You should see and hear a spark. If not check fuses and check the ignition module - that is the device that tells the the coil to send a spark. You could also remove the wire from the coil to the dist cap and look for a spark.

No Spark

The relay for the fuel pump is working but have you checked that the pump is actually pressurising the system . Next you have power at the coil but is it getting to the spark plugs from the distributor.

It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power

Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks

My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

PT Cruiser 2003 died while driving, no spark from new coil

Hello, I hear that pt quit while driving and you heard a thump,and you replaced the battery and coil and still no fire. Well it sounds like you have timing belt that broke it will keep it from firing at the coil if broke. Remove oil fill have someone spin engine over and see if camshaft turns if not turning the belt is broken. Please rate this answer, Thank you.

The car is running on 2 cylinder,

If you have no spark on the coil pack for these cylinders, try scanning the car to see if you get codes for a camshaft positioning sensor or crankshaft positioning sensor.
