No fire to the coil? Does that vehicle even HAVE a coil, or is it a coil PACK? Just to make sure the Automatic Shutdown Relay is not at fault, disconnect the battery for 10-15 minutes, then reconnect it and try it again ... but LISTEN carefully for a "groan" of about 1-2 seconds when you turn the key ON but not far enough to crank the engine. That will tell you if the fuel pump works. If there is no sound, with the battery connected and with the key in the ON position, take a rubber mallet and strike the bottom of the fuel tank a few times, until you hear the fuel pump turn on, even if it's only a second or two. Then try to start the engine again. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep grand Cheroke hard cranking, sputtering, rough idling

In READING what you wrote, it appears that your car is difficult to start and pretty much is rough while running....It also appears that your are randomly replacing parts...How did you verify that the parts your have replaced had failed? I suggest you get a basic manual like chiltons or haynes as well as a decent digital volt/ohmeter, then do some testing. Pay close attention to map sensor test and manifold air temp. Having a good fuel pump does not insure that your injectors are clean enough to deliver a good spray pattern This will not show up on any need to actually look at them. There are other items to look at but I think you will likely find your problem in what i mentioned. (you already checked for vacuum leaks, right?)
Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE with a 3.3

The coil pack unit's circuit #3 drives plugs #3 and #6 directly from the PCM. If the cam sensor was defective, it should not fire any plugs. Suspect bad wiring from the PCM to the coil pack, the PCM unit itself, or a segment of the camshaft position sensor surface has lost magnetism causing missing signal to the PCM. An oscilloscope is the best test instrument for chasing down a missing pulse problem. The missing timing signal also explains why the PCM would report a 'bad camshaft sensor'. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "I appreciate the in depth explanation of what could cause those specific plugs not to fire. I was told to maybe try changing the crankshaft pos. sensor. I figure it can't hurt. Thanks a lot."

Check for sparks. If no sparks, test crankshaft sensor. If sparks good, check fuel pressure at injector rail. Not sure which engine you have...tbi versus mfi.

1990 Grand Voyager will not start. No fire to

The 1st one from the strut is the ASD (Auto Shutdown relay) which can't be overlooked in this matter, The 2nd one is the started relay. Both of these can sometimes be tapped with a screwdriver handle lightly to get to work.

My voyger van will not start. I think the burgler alarm system is preventing it from starting. What can I check.

Check for any stored codes this can be done with the key on key off test, a MIL code will flash of any faults are stored. A bad sensor like the camshaft or crankshaft position sensor will allow the vehicle to crank but not start, also check the ASD relay in the PDC which houses fuses and relays under the hood next to the battery.

1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager 3.8 eng won't start

Check primary voltage at ignition coil and fuel injectors, engine cranking, use a test lite, dark green wire with orange tracer. If no voltage, that comes from asd relay. Some makes and models if the computer doesn't see the cam and crank sensor signals, the computer won't ground the relay.
You need to do some testing.
