Replace the crank sensor, crank sensor is for spark, cam sensor is for fuel. let me know how you make out.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

3800 no spark


You where deffinetely on the right track with the module. The other component I would suspect is the crank sensor. This can be tested with a lab scope. You should have a five volt square wave from this sensor if it is working properly. It's also not a bad idea to make sure the module is recieving ignition power and to make sure the connector pins are clean, free of damage, and not burnt up or corroded. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 90 honda civic it was running fine then died and wouldnt start. I am getting no spark, i changed the coil and the ignition modual but i still have no spark


Have you checked the ignitor on the car some of these have one mounted right next to the coil and they will stop it from getting fire. Also check cam and crank sensors and ensure they are sending out a signal.

check the throttle position sensor,it may be stuck and it wont start unless its all the way back.Almost like trying to start it with the gas pedal down-which it will crank and crank but it wont start.

1993 grand am no spark


You said you changed the ecm module, is that the ecm or the ignition module. Do you have access to a scanner to check cranking rpm? That way you can test the new crank sensor and the wiring and the ignition module.

I have found the most common part failure issue with the ignition system is the crank sensor, also called by some the TDC sensor.
