Does the light come for a short time when the key is turned on? If not, the bulb may be burned out.You should be showing that light because I suspect either the crankshaft or camshaft position sensor is bad (or is unplugged). There is also the possibility that the ignition switch is partially bad (no dash lights of any kind).

No spark changed plug still no spark

What make vehicle are you working on Granville ? You have no spark at any spark plugs ? Do you battery voltage at the coils ? Do you have any lights lit on the dash , check engine , security light flashing or on solid ? There are a few things that could cause no spark besides coil , ignition control module , crankshaft position sensor , a bad engine computer ! This is where using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter is a necessity ! With out checking for voltage an checking to see if the ECM/PCM is turning the voltage on an off at the coil's you could replace parts that do not need to be replaced !

I connected the wrong ignition coil wire from the spark plug and now my r m p instrument cluster will not work

probably didn't connect the tacho wire to the right side of the coil for the first problem
because the engine was replaced it is possible that a sensor wire to a wheel for the traction light was damaged /disconnected

No spark

If the check engine light does NOT light up on the dash, when you first turn on the ignition, then the ecu computer is in need of repair. That computer controls spark and fuel and both will not work if that ecu needs repair.

I have a 1995 jeep (country) cherkee that will turn over but not start, no spark still after changing the crankshaft position sensor, any ideas

On Chrysler products, you check the ASD relay for power and then the coil for power and a ground pulse from the distributor.
I am assuming you do not have spark at the coil and at the plugs and this is the 4.0 engine with a distributor.

My 1999 chevy blaxer ls turns over but will not start, i can smell the gas but it just donesn't start, what could be the problem?

A lot of solutions for this. It could be fuel pump, timing, crankshaft sensor,. Question? Was the check engine light on before it quit on you? Hmmmm. If so we need to scan the codes to find out whats wrong. If not we need to find out if the problem is fuel related or electrical. How many miles on the vehicle? Good luck!!!!

Will not start wants to turn over but no fire

Try the coil, But first take a spark plug out and put it back in the cap, then rest it on the engine somewhere and then get a friend to turn over the engine to see if there is a spark at that plug, if not then check the lead between the coil and the distributor cap for good connection, if you still dont have a spark it will probably be the coil mate, Having said that if you have a healthy spark then check you have a fuel supply, Colin.

Tempature dropped car wont start

Check the voltage on your battery with a voltmeter should be at least 12 volts without any power hooked up to it.

Pull a spark plug wire off of the coil, have someone crank the starter and hold the plug wire very close to the coil (same place you pulled the wire from) to see if there is a spark. Be careful and stay away from the engine will it is cranking

Charge the battery.

Check altenator belt and connections.

warm the car or battery (can you get the car in your garage?)
