It could also be the ignition coil has gone bad. The coil is the thing that sends the spark to the top of the distributor which then distibutes the spark to the various plugs. No spark at the coil wire means no spark at the plug. Easy test for this is to get a hair dryer start the car and use the hair dryer on the coil if the car cuts off when you do this then it is the coil and not the ignition module.

I dont know what year and engine you have but sounds like a typical ford ignition module problem.When it will not start,check the spark at one of the plug wires.If there is spark when it is cold but none once warmed up.Replace the module.Your parts house (autozone or advance) can check it for you.But remember it is going to test good when it is cold.They have no way to check it while its hot.If your not sure,have it checked out by a profesional.Good Luck!!!

Gages go out and car cuts off when hot 2002 nissan sentra


Start at the ecm/pcm relay. The ecm/pcm is what runs the engine and sends the data to the instrument panel. Most likely the relay gets to hot and cuts out, thus not sending any power to the ecm/pcm.

try this... take off your ignition coil and test the resistance of the coil.. both cold and hot.. if your test goes to infinite all zeros.. you have what's commmonly called a hot coil... when it heats up it doesn't make contact internally right and doesn't allow power to flow.. no spark from coil.. no vrroom vrroom
