Try looking for the crank sensor. It is located on the tranny bell housing. With out this senor the vehicle will not spark or send a signal to the coil for a spark. Its not a easy job to replace but I belive this could be your problem.

If I can help more please feel free to ask!

    My bad I was thinking 97, I believe it just has a throttle position sensor on the top of the cams just behind the upper engine behind the throttle body. This is a magnetic sensor that if not working properlly will not allow a spark. Sorry for the confusion, day off from the shop but my mind still races to fix cars..lol

    thanks again joe but this motor is carburated no throttle body, do you think the stator could be bad

Location of ignition control module 2001 cadilac deville


Ignition Coils/Modules
The electronic ignition system uses an individual ignition coil for each cylinder. There are two separate ignition module assemblies located in the camshaft cover of each cylinder bank. Each ignition module assembly contains an ignition control module and four ignition coils. Each ignition coil connects directly to a spark plug using a boot. This arrangement eliminates the need for secondary ignition wires. The ignition module assemblies receive power from a fused ignition feed. Both ignition module assemblies connect to chassis ground. A Reference Low and four ignition control (IC) circuits connect each ignition module assembly to the PCM. The PCM uses the individual IC circuits to control coil sequencing and spark timing for each ignition coil. The IC circuits transmit timing pulses from the PCM to the ignition control module to trigger the ignition coil and fire the spark plug. The PCM controls ignition system sequencing and timing events

Why wont my 2002 olds alero start when its cold out


One of the coil packs or the ignition module is probably bad. Test for spark when cold. If no spark on any coils suspect the ignition module or crank position sensor. If spark is gone on only one coil check the plugs and wires to that coil pack. If theplugs and wires are ok then replace thge coil pack. Don't forget the obvious load test the battery and clean the battery connections. If the check engine light is on run any diagnostic codes and repair

1990 Isuzu 2.6 L 5 spd. No start.. Fuel pressure is ok, not getting spark. Checked coil, ignition module, distributor, computer and coil wire. No power coming from the coil. Small voltage going into...


assuming you the coil, plugs, cap, rotor and wires are good. check the cam sensor, If you have 12 volts to the coil using a 12v light tester. The cam sensor responsible for sending info to the computer telling it that the cam is turning, then the computer tell the coil to dispurse the charge/sparks to the distributor as distributor distribute the sparks to each plugs from the rotor of the distributor. Replace the cam sensor, it tend to go bad over period of time.

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.


Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

Getting gas but no spark;


If your are sure that the ignition module and coil are good,then check your pick-up coil.It is inside the distributor cap,close to the module.The ECM does not produce the voltage to the coil.The voltage comes from the a fused 12v source.
