No spark to the spark plugs

When a problem like this occurs the very first thing that must be done is to have the module that controls the engine tested for fault codes, this is called an OBD2 fault code test. Once you have the fault code a trained technician must do the diagnostics outlined for the code in the factory repair manual and replace the appropriate parts.

Where is the ignition module. Can I get to it from under the hood? Should I replace the Crank module when I replace the ignition module?


The ICM is located under the hood, next to the coil pack and spark plug wires. Here the part: Pontiac Grand Am Ignition Control Module (ICM).

If you ar having distribution problem and misfire check also the crankshaft position sensor. It signal is used to control coils and sparks.

I have a 99 grand am SE 2.4 4 cylinder and my problem #2 misfire, repalced spark plugs with AC delco rapid fires, replaced coil packs, replaced coil pack housing, changed spark plug boots, had ignition...

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

If you have a volt/ohm meter, you may want to first ohm check the resistance between the two spark plug towers on each ignition coil pack. Simply remove the spark plug wires from each coil pack and test. Both (if good) should test about the same resistance, (about 5-7 kOhms, but I don't have the exact specs handy on this particular vehicle. The reading may be higher, maybe around 7-12kOhms) but nonetheless, the reading of the 1-4 coil pack should closely match the 2-3 coil pack. If not, the new coil pack may be faulty and should be returned for a replacement.

Also, when you remove the 1-4 coil pack, take a look at the primary spade connectors (2 lugs) coming out of the ignition module. Make certain these are clean and free of rust or corrosion. If so, simply (and gently) use a finger nail file or 400 (or equivilent) sandpaper to file the corrosion off and re-attach the coil pack.

If one or both of these don't fix the problem, you may have to look at replacing the ignition module. But only do that after exhausting the other simpler and less expensive tests! :)

I hope these tips help you out or at least point you in the right direction! :)

03m grand am p0300 multiple misfires, cats seem fine, changed fuel filter, dont know what to do next

this could be caused by a couple of things. Defective plug wires, coil packs cause this as does the Ignition control module. Also being overful on oil will also cause a multiple misfire on your particular vehicle and others. Hope I narrowed it down some for you.
