Could be crankshaft position sensor or PCM. See my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6223989-ignition_coil_doesn_t_spark and let me know if you have questions.

These cars had problems with cam and crank sensors. If the computer does not see a signal from either one, the coils will not be triggered. If you can, scan the car for codes, if there is any history for either sensor, start there, otherwise try the crank sensor first.

SOURCE: not getting spark

Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest

SOURCE: no spark at spark plugs

Check to see that voltage is getting from the coil to the distributor and then to the spark plugs. You can use a VOM or Test Light (whatever you used to check power to the coil) to determine where you are losing spark.
Good luck.

What can cause power to reach coil bot not spark plugs


The coil pack is damaged if you've got power up to the pack, if your not getting spark at the plug, the coil pack is damaged and needs to be replaced.

What energises coil pack


Its not what energizes the coil pack, but what controls it, and that is the ignition control module, or ICM. The power to the coil pack is or should be constant, anytime the key is in on or run. The power may be from the switch or from the engine computer, but it is constant.

The ICM takes this primary circuit current from the coils and controls the coils that way. When a coils primary circuit is cut by the ICM, a spark is delivered out top of the coil. The ICM does this when the computer determines spark is needed and sends a signal to the ICM.

A few other things it could be, too, causing no spark, like the crankshaft sensor, or the pcm, but often it is the ignition control module.

Coil quit firing


If you have no spark from two of the four towers of your coil pack, you need to check the wiring between the coil pack and the ignition module. Since you have spark at two towers, that proves you have power to the coil pack. Both sets of coil windings in the coil pack are fed by the same B+ feed,(red and light green wires to both coil packs too). The control side wires from the ignition module to the coil packs are tan/light green and tan/light blue for one coil pack.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2006 Suzuki forenza no fire from coil pack


what country? this is the WWW, post country for better answers.......!
Only a scope can see the fast 5mS signals to the coil.
so its either the coil pack or the ECU blown. (wires are always suspect)
you never said , all 4 are dead, or 1 or 2, and how many packs.
some non usa cars have wasted (2pak) spark , not 4 COPS.
state what cylinders have spark and which don't.
there are only 2 ways to fix cars.
1: guess and swap parts
2: use tools. my guess is you dont have them.
some coil packs are active (ignitor inside) others just a coil.
you can test the restance of the coils, with a DMM , ohm meter.
if active you cant.
the fsm covers this on all cars.
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/category/3-suzuki-service-manuals.aspx
the 2006 Forenza as delivered to USA has.....
has a large single, dual wasted spark coil pack. (brick)
it does in fact have , internal ignitor drivers. inside. so can not be tested
with and ohm meter on the primary side. but can be on the secondary
you do know how to test wasted spark , right, All spark plugs must be
attached and grounded for the coil to work,
1and 4 are shared.
2 and 3 are shared.
so to test , you must keep the spark plugs (both or all 4 is best)
attached and the shells of spark plugs grounded.
there is a fuse that powers the coil pack. (usa)
the fuel pump relay sends power to the coil pack.
so of that is dead,so will be the pack. (im reading FSM as it type)
get an FSM.
pin 2 on coil pack is power. 12v.
pin 1,is spark 1&4 drive (fast ECU pulse)
pin 3 is 2&3 coil drive. (scope can see it)

recap, are you using the correct wasted spark testing method.
and are all 4 spark plugs dead.?

I dont have any spark. have power to the coil pack just nothing past that. what to do??


Check the crank shaft postioning sensor. If you are getting power to the coil pack and there is no power coming out of the coil pack the coil pack might be bad or have corrioson between the coil pack and the mount. Thanks

I GOT NO FIRE ON THE PLUGS


The spark gets power to spark from coil packs.If the connection between coil pack to spark plug is weak or loose then it will not fire.But if the coil pack as well as the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked ok then its faulty or dirty spark plugs.Clean the spark plugs with the carb cleaner liquid and let it completely dry.Then check.Also check the voltage between coil pack to spark plugs.If both checked out ok then the other possibility can be weak crank shaft sensor. Thanks.Helpmech.

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit it.it will not turn over.Thank you sherry


No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

No spark runns fine then loses spark wait 10 minutes starts


The spark plugs receives power to spark from coil pack.Check the power at the coil pack and also check the voltage at the coil pack with meter.If the coil pack shows proper power as well as voltage then its fault in spark plugs.Otherwise its faulty coil pack.The coil pack receives power from battery.so also check the voltage of the battery it should be exact 12 volt.
If the battery shows low voltage then the battery needs to be re-charged.
Then check out.
