Hi
Did you make sure the distributor is turning? Rotor installed? Make sure all the grounds are connected, clean, and tight.
Using your test light, probe the negative side of the coil, should blink when cranking the engine. If not, and the distributor turns, either the pickup is bad, you have a wiring problem, or a PCM problem. Make sure to use quality ignition parts. Many aftermarket ignition modules are not worth the money
Thanks for using Fixya

My 1996 honda accord wont start. Engine turns over but wont start up. had the problem yesterday hit the distupter with a hammer it started up after. today nothing


You might have a bad ignition coil or ICM both located inside the distributor. I'll just replace them both. I hope you didn't damage the distributor when you hit it with the hammer, it's about $200 part new. good luck

Cranks wont start, 98 Durango


check to see if getting fuel or if you smell gas when cranking if you smell gas you probably have a spark problem which will probably be a coil and or a pickup coil in your distributor replace coil and then distributor. If you are not getting gas most likely fuel pump in tank see if it will fire on starting fluid then replace fuel pump good luck
