I have a 92 Honda accord wagon does not get power to coil. Distritutor Or fuel pump. Coil and distributor are both new. Any idea what it could be Thanks Rob

Check your maxi fuses in the under hood fuse/relay box. The black/yellow wire to the coil is directly from the ignition switch-it should be hot in run.
Fuse # 15 is an 80 amp fuse, and fuse #19 is a 50 amp fuse. Both of these supply the ignition switch with power.

you should have power to the coil only when the key is on.if not then check all fuses as i think this has an ignition the fuses are good then you will have to check the wiring from the coil back to see if there is wire can also check for power out the ignition switch that supplies power to several components.between here and the ignition coil is were you will find the problem.

I have no supply voltage to the coil in my Ford 1988 F250. I have changed the ignition switch and tested the wiring harness. Both have proven not to be the problem. What should I do next? Help?? ...

Hi if you have power supply from the ignition switch to the coil then there is a problem from the switch to the coil. It may have a fusible wire inline with it which maybe broken. The next best thing to do is run a wire from the ignition switch to the coil this will get it going.

Getting no fir to coil,changed coil and igniter,still no fire,can't afford much more. stab in fuses have been replaced under dash and under hood except larger amp fuses w/clear tops,visually look fine

Are you getting power to the coil from the ignition switch? Use a 12 volt test light with the clip attached to engine ground. Turn the key on and backprobe the connector terminal with the black wire/red stripe. If there is no power to the coil, trace the wire back to the ignition switch to see if it is broken, or replace the ignition switch.
If there is power to the coil, open the distributor and check the components there for excessive wear or broken wires on the pickup coil.
Please let me know if you have more questions.

Key turns,gas pump works, does not turn

Try this...

You need to check for spark at the number 1 spark plug if no spark then it could be a few things
1.crank shaft position sensor
2. distributor cap or plugs
3. pick up coil inside distributor
4. ignition coil
5.ignition module
6.Blowen fuse check both engine fuses and inside cab fuses
7. oil pressure switch
You can pull the coil wire going into the distributor cap and check for spark there if no spark there then your problem will be from the ignition coil back

Is there a inline fuse from the ignition switch to the ignition coil?

no sir
not from the switch to the coil.
the coil does not get power from the switch.
the switch turns relays on that powers the coils.
but there is an ignition fuse.
the ignition switch turns on power relays from the battery that powers the ignition system.
the ignition system fuse is in the fuse box.

hope this helps
thank you

1988 honda civic 1.5 l engine turns over but will not spark or run,new spark plugs,roter,and cap still no spark

well if this is the model i think it is you have pgm ignition. you have an ignition coil , ignitor unit, ground wires all(corrosion) left to check.
coil testing
  1. With ignition switch OFF, remove the distributor cap.
  2. Remove the two screws to disconnect the BLK/YEL front terminal A and WHT/BLU from terminal B of the coil.
  3. Using an ohmmeter, check resistance between terminals. Replace coil if resistance is not within specification.
  4. Check that the primary winding resistance between terminals A and B is 0.3-0.5 ohms.
  5. Check that the secondary winding resistance between terminals A and the coil tower is 9,440-14,160 ohms.
  6. If not within specifications, replace the coil.

unit testing
    1. Check and service any Honda engine codes before proceeding.
    2. Check the No. 32 50A fuse on 1985-91 models, or the No. 39 50A fuse on 1992-95 models in the dash fuse box before testing.
    3. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and the leak cover.
    4. Disconnect the wires from the igniter.
    5. Turn the ignition switch ON.
    6. Check for voltage between the BLK/YEL wire and ground. If there is no voltage check the BLK/YEL wire and ignition switch.
    7. Check for voltage between the WHT/BLU wire and ground. If there is no voltage check the WHT/BLU wire and the ignition coil.
    8. Check the continuity between the WHT wire and body ground. Service the wire or connectors as needed.
    9. Check for continuity between the BLU wire and body ground. If no continuity check the wire and connectors between the igniter unit and the
tachometer or the A/Trans control unit.

after these things let me know if problem persists
    1. If any tests were not passed, replace the igniter unit.
