Question about 1997 Dodge Avenger
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.
