Not cranking and not firing


If the engine cranks, but won't start, and you are not getting spark to the plugs, you need to find out if you have voltage to the coils and module. Is the check engine light on ?

My car wont star the dash lights and every thing comes on but wont start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If the car won't fire then it can be a faulty coil pack. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs, one good reason why it won't fire up the engine.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

1997 jeep grand cheerkee tunes over but won,t start no fire from coil to distributor


So you have B+ to coil but no B+ from coil to distributor. Sounds like the ignition module.
Its not triggering coil to fire . Double check it with a test light at negative side of coil and then to ground.crank the vehicle if light flickers its ok if not its your culprit.
Should light flicker then test its the wires from coil to distributor, distributor , rotor and plug wires.
Honestly if the light flickers your not losing anything by replaceing the items from the coil tower to the plugs.
