Question about 1999 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I have a 1999 mercury tracer. No spark and no power to the injectors.I have replaced the crank sensor and coil pack but still have the same symptoms. There is no engine light on and when I tried to scan the computer with a new scanner, it could not sync with the the computer. This all started when the car just died on the way to work. The timing belt is on and in good condition.

    The car is here in the U.S. It does have keyless entry but I was unaware of an immobiliser. Would that prevent the computer from being scanned with a brand new (not from WALMART) obd II scanner? I am beginning to think its the computer since from what I understand the information from the crank sensor goes into the computer for processing berore it is sent to the coil pack and injectors. What do you think?

What country is this vehicle in as if its in europe or asia you cannot read the software ,now what i suspect is the immobilisor or the computer but the only way to be sure is to call a tow truck and have it taken to a dealer who can read the EBDII

    firstly sorry about delay in answering but their is a slight time zone difference here ,now the best advice i can offer here is to either call a mobile locksmith who will have the software to be able to by pass immobilisor to start vehicle then apply for the code to reset it all or the dealer the latter is the best bet ,also try the spare key in case the chip has fallen out of the key or been erased with a mobile phone ,trust me on this it happens .whilst immobilisor is on you cannot read the fault codes as its all sort of locked up ,and if its a europeon market vehicle then you cannot read the codes at all as its all encrypted up to stop home mechanics .

I have a 2005 dodge neon that will crank but wont start. I have replaced the cam shaft sensor, crank sensor and the coil pack. Iam also not getting spark to the coil pack. Any suggestions?


Primary voltage to several systems, including the ignition coil, dark green wire with orange tracer. That voltage comes from asd relay. There is a fuse for asd relay. To check for voltage the engine has to cranking. The control side of asd relay, the computer has to ground it before it will energize. Did you check wiring circuits for cam and crank sensor connectors before replacing sensors? Are there any applicable trouble codes?
Are you ok with testing wiring circuits?

Ford mercury cougar with the code p0301 whats dose this mean


A P0301 code means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #1.

Symptoms may include:
the engine may be harder to start
the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate
other symptoms may also be present

A code P0301 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wire
Faulty coil (pack)
Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector
Burned exhaust valve
Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Running out of fuel
Poor compression
Defective computer

Possible Solutions:
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Hope helps.

I cant get spark out of the coil pack


cam sensor fires the injectors to synchronise injector pulsing with the spark at the spark plugs.. U need to probably change the crankshaft sensor (around the crank pulley) as the crank sensor is what controls the ignition spark.
hope that does it.
