We can not figure out why my 1990 dodge ram keeps back firing we replaced the plugs, button, cap,wires and coil and its still back fires

You need to get an exact firing order diaghram for your make,model and engine,

call any autoparts store, and they will give you the firing order for your truck, if one

or more wires are wrong, can cause the engine to backfire or run bad. also make

sure you have the correct gap on your sparkplugs. check and set the timing,

if needed, the auto parts will also have the timing marks position. good luck!

Check if equipped for anti theft system. Usually the anti theft will allow for initial spark and then kill the fuel injectors!
Disconnect the battery and have it recharged and tested, if it fails the test replace it. Use the key and manually lock and unlock the drivers door if the alarm is still set, There is a switch attached to the door lock that disables the anti theft. If the driver's side is defective switch you have to do this from the passenger door.

Hope this helps?

No spark

Check the plate under the distribtor cap. Also you said you replaced the coil but did you check the coil wire the goes to the distrib, they can rot off at the coil.
