If you have a manual transmission check the rubber gromets on the top of your clutch pedal. If they are dry-rotted or missing your vehicle will not start.

Try spraying some starter fluid in carb and see if it starts. If it does it's not getting any fuel. could be fuel filter, pump relay, or pump

The starting circuit doesn't really connect to the distributer and as far as a module goes, it's not really connected to the distributer and has 4 wires going to it not 3. You said 3 wires and distributer in your question so I'm gonna try and help you and hope I am understanding what you are trying to ask. You didn't mention your engine size and the picture looks small but it really doesn't matter if you happen to have the 4.3 liter engine. The wiring is pretty much the same. The wire colors may be the same V-6 or V-8 Engine. Now the distributer does have 3 wires coming from the distributer (pink, pink with a black stripe and a brown with a white stripe). Those are for the cam shaft position sensor which is mounted on the distributer. I am guessing the engine won't start but does turn over and your not getting any spark at the spark plugs (kinda going by your question you wrote. If this is what is happening then yes the ignition control "Module" correct however that is mounted on the right (passenger) side of the engine basically on top of the valve cover. Like I said it has 4 wires going to it and if this is faulty you will not get any spark. In the picture with the engine, where I put the red arrow at is the general location of the module. The other 2 pictures are the wiring diagrams for the entire starting circuit and the wiring for the cam shaft position sensor. If I'm way off of what your question is you can reply here with more details in your question or feel free to email you directly at Hope I was able to help a little bit anyway.

it sounds like you have spark in the RUN position, but not in the START position.

try leaving key un RUN position and truck in park wit e brakr applied. Then jump starter at the starter and see if it starts.

Lights come on will not crank. tried jump start no luck. 1993 Plymouth voyager.

Get a small hammer or hard metal piece likeaheavy wrench and tap the starter while someone trys to start it while you are tapping. Be sure the emergency brake is on good and tight. We don't want any accidents do we. You most likely will have to crawl under the vehicle to find the starter. But yours is un older model so you may be able to follow the battery positive side cable to the starter. But again you may want to clean your battery termanals and posts and where the termanals connect to the cable before you go after the starter. A little corrosion can prevent your car from starting but still allow enough electricity to get through and operate your lights.

If neither of these were the problem then we need to delve further and check the distributer modulator. They can go out just like the snap o fa fingure. You will need to take the distribute rcap off and then inside you will see a half moon shaped plastic usually black tiny box. What we will want to do is get an extention cord and ahair blow dryer. Youwill then set thedryer on highand point it directly at this little black box. Get it good and hot butnot to themelting point. Hurry and re-attach the distributer cap and then try to turn it over. If it trys to start andmay even start for a few minutes then that is the culprit. Here comes the bad news. If it is the part weneed it will cost you nearly 400.00 to 600.00 dollars new. The higher amount will be from the dealership. What I did with mine wascall around to the wrecking yards and though I had to buy the complete distributer, it only cost me 50 bucks. I then took the half moon piece out and put it in mine and problem solved. The bad thing is the theives know what they can get for these modulators and steel them out of the distributers at the wrecking yards and the workers don't even know they're missing sobe sure to check the distributer before buying it and besure the part is still in it. You can also find them on ebay and that is why they get stolen and the prices are high there too. So do the other trouble shooting first and then try this. Good Luck, Raz

Is the engine turning over and just not starting? Go back to basics, you need fuel, fire, compression, and proper timing to get it to start. Check the fuel pump, do you hear it run when you turn the key on? Do you have fuel pressure, if so check for spark at the spark plugs, if you have spark try turning the engine over and have a buddy spray some starting fluid in the throttle body, if it tries to start then you have a fuel problem. If no fire check dist module, ign coil and coil wire.
