Engine turns over, but will not start. There is no spark at the spark plugs. I have checked all under hood fuses and all interior drivers side fuses as well, all have continuity. What should I check next?

I have had the same problem and it was caused by the Immobilizer(?) ("Startonderbreker" in Dutch), I removed the battery cabel (+) and after 15 minutes reconnected it. Hope it helps.

1. Measurement of the primary coil resistance. Measure the resistance between connector terminals 3 and 1 (the coils at the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinder sides) of the ignition coil, and between terminals 3 and 2 (the coils at the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinder sides).

2. Measurement of the secondary coil resistance. Measure the resistance between the high-voltage terminal for the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinders, and between the high-voltage terminals for the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinders. Be sure, when measuring the resistance of the secondary coil, to disconnect the connector of the ignition coil.959e0ec.gif


CHECKING SPARK PLUG CABLES 1. Check the cap and outer shell for cracks. 2. Measure the resistance Spark plug cable (SOHC)
Resistance should not be higher than 10,000Ω per foot of cable. If resistance is higher, replace the cable.

    Check also for any loose or bad wire harness connection, engine ground cable connection and generally electric ignition circuit.

My car was running. I bypassed the relay for the A/C compressor to turn on the engine stopped running.Did not start again, checked for fuse, found one blown, Put fuse in, blew that fuse too.

I can't tell what you've done? Where is the fuse located, under the hood--interior fuse box? What is the fuse amp rating and what does it control?
If it cranks good but won't start, make sure the battery has a full charge, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, check fuel injector pulse.
What about your security system?

There are 2 diodes in the fuse box under the hood, there is a spare diode in the interior fuse box. Take that diode and try to swap it with one of the 2 under the hood. Guaranteed one of the diodes under the hood is blown. Do not listen to the other guys advice, he is an idiot!

97 Tarus wont start

recheck spark by putting a plug into one of the plug wires and place on valve cover, crank engine and see saprk in that plug. check fuel pressure during cranking to verify fuel supply. If you have no fuel pressure check fuses and fuel pump relay, in fuse box and power distribution box under the hood. If all are good check for power at the fuel pump connector with the key in start position, in run position the power will only be there for about 5 seconds, you are correct with fuel and spark it should run, let me know what you find

2000 Hyundai Accent plug gap

Under the hood you will find a white sticker, about 2-3 inches wide. On it will have the engine size/group and the spark plug gap and other service information. Good luck

No spark from spark plugs.

Another person had a similar issue with their 2003 Hyundai 1.6L engine. Their fix after looking at many things was that their ECM relay had gone bad. The relay is located in a box under the hood. The box has fuses and relays ... usually there is a legion or map of what is where on the underside of the box cap/lid. The relay is about the size of a one inch cube.

Ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal. Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and a distributor and any variations of these components.
