You need to find out if it is a fuel problem or electrical.
Spray carb cleaner into the carb. Does it start now ?
If no, remove spark plug, install wire, ground plug against metal on engine, have someone turn over engine while you look for spark, no spark, then pull cap off distributor, check for mositure, check for cracks ect. May be the module, coil wire ect.

Check all your fuses as it sounds like you have lost power to the ignition circuits. Check fuses electrically, not just by looking at them. Buy yourself a test probe, they are inexpensive and are available from most auto parts stores..use the probe and place the tip on each end of the fuse. If it lights up at both ends, the fuse is good, if it only lights up at one end, replace the fuse. If it does not light up at all, the chances are that fuse is unpowered, like the tail lamp fuse will not light up at all if the tail lamps are turned off...

check for a faulty starter relay but I suspect that the problem is in the ignition switch where the contacts inside the switch are not making contact
if the ignition is on and the starter is cranking the engine and the run contacts are making contact it will fire and run
check harness connections under the dash

Pu t in new coil and distrubtor cap and rotor put in new electronic module not firing wont start


No spark at the spark plug? It may be the pick-up coil inside the distributor. This is the sensor that tells the computer the engine's crank position.
If the ignition switch is good, you should have power at the coil's + terminal when key is on. You might check for that.

Car wont start. dim dash lights. battery good.no headlights.starter motor cranks with screwdriver but wont fire engine


Are you using a screwdriver because the ignition will not cause the starter motor to rotate? If so, there are a few reasons that can be:
1) The starter fuse is blown
2) The starter relay is defective
3) The clutch start switch is defective, or the wiring harness is not making a good connection ( in case you have a manual transmission). A similar switch is mounted on the automatic transmission to make sure the car is in park or neutral when starting.
4) There is also a 60 and 100 amp fuse between the battery and the ignition switch that could be defective.
5) The ignition switch is defective.

When you do use the screwdriver, are you putting the key in the "ON" position? This should start the car if the starter motor is in fact rotating.
