    I would check evey ground wire there is for your no spark problem. Does the connection to the coil pack have power comming in.

Yes you are heading in right right direction. Check to see if there is spark out of coil. Spark at coil means replace distributor or rotor. No spark at coil replace ignition module or crank sensor good luck. Oh yea crank sensor is cheaper i would try that first if there is spark out of coil.

Power at engine module and power to good coil packs but no spark


Sounds like a bad crank sensor or a bad ignition module. If you have a scanner that can read sensor data, you can crank the engine over and see if there is an "RPM" reading. If there is an RPM reading, then the crank sensor is good...Throw the module away. If there is no RPM, replace the crank sensor.

99 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L no power to ignition. Receiving Code P1684 but battery connection okay.


I have a problem with a 1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7. Looking for some help or suggestions.


Problem: I only have a spark from the #2 coil.


Background:


Vehicle purchased from an Auction and would not start. The vehicle would only backfire. When I removed the valve covers I found that one of the rocker arms had popped out. I replace the heads with heads from a 2001 Intrepid 2.7. I used the cams, primary and secondary timing chains from the 1999 heads. Not sure if I used the original primary (left) cam sprocket from the 1999 or one I purchased in a kit from a Dodge dealership. I tried to use the new primary timing chain but it was not the same. The replacement heads were surfaced and a new head gasket was used. When I tried to start the vehicle it had no spark. The vehicle had set at several locations and parts may have been removed or changed.


Solutions Tried:


I tried 4 ASD relays with no effect. I then tested all 4 on a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 that runs and all worked. I then discovered that the Crank PS has missing. I replaced the Crank PS with one from a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 with no effect. I then replaced the Crank PS with a Crank PS from a 1999 Intrepid 2.7 and got a spark at the #2 coil only. I then replaced the PCM and TCM from the same 1999 Intrepid I got the Crank PS from and still only have spark from #2 coil. I then changed the Cam PS, still spark only from #2 coil. I have tried several coil packs on connector #2 and all have spark. Each coil pack that sparks on #2 will not spark on any other connector. Spark from #2 coil is weak.


I then replaced the wire harness from the PCM to the coils and fuel injectors and still only have spark from the #2 coil. What am I missing? Any suggestions, advice or related information will be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!

2003 chev malibu wont start due to lack of spark from the coil pack, checked the voltage from the ignition and its ok, changed cam sensor, changed the crank sensor, tested the coil pack and the processor...


That car has 2 crank sensors , did you replace both? One is at the front crank pulley and the other is behind and low on the engine block, above oil pan. Be sure the ICM (ign control module has a good ground, (black wire) it grounds at a bracket where the trans bolts to the engine approx at the 2 o'clock position.
