There is also possibility that your anti theft system is acting up preventing from starting the car

    Another possibility is faulty crank position sensor. Engine is cranking but because of faulty sensor ecm wont "see" spinning engine and in result not sending information to ignition system to fire sparks.

Looks like you have check most of the basics - but i don't see anything about coil packs. Better check those as well. Not likely that all went out, but likely that one is misbehaving. Should be able to see the voltage toggle with a meter on the input. Also check compression to make sure the combustion chamber is OK

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

SOURCE: 1985 VW Cabriolet cranks fine. Timing belt

That is very interesting.If you have spark to the distributor means that the coil and a CP sensor are OK.Than you have to check ignition leeds and a spar plugs.Did you put correct rotor and a distributor cup?Check compression of the cilynders

SOURCE: I have a 94 Buick park ave. I replaced icm, ecm,

Have you tried testing the ignition coil pack(s)? If this goes out then there wouldnt be any spark delivered to the plugs, this part is relatively cheap and is a common problem causing no spark.

Make sure the coils plugged in I've seen this way to many times. If its not that follow the path backwards. Spark plug/wire/coil/icm/crank sensor cam sensor/ ecm

Car cranks but wont start? No spark. Changed ecm relay no help. Ignition harness is good. No fault codes. Battery is good. changed ignition relay, no help. I think its the ECM but need more info to spend...


Yes, the ECM is the last thing to replace after all other possibilities. No spark could be bad ignition coil, bad Ignition Control Module (controls the coil circuits for spark), bad plug wires, the crank and cam sensors (for ECM to determine spark timing).

Check the ICM -it can be tested at a parts store. If good, check the crank sensor.

What does acam or crankshaft sensor do


  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • The camshaft position sensor identifies position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown

    the icm, coil, and crank sensor all read off the opti. Chances are you have a bad optispark (distributor). I just went thru the same issue and found it to be the problem.

    check your fuel pressure as well, you may have anissue with your fuel pump and or relay

    1997 Jetta GT 2.0 Stopped running,cranks,will not start


    Checking for spark is really simple while fuel delivery is more complicated because of the the way it is metered for delivery. On VW's a fuel pump relay is used and a jumper cable connected to relay box. This controls the fuel pump to deliver fuel manually. With a fuel pressure gauge connected to the line from the pump continued withing the system, you assess whether you have correct fuel pressure, maintain it within a specif duration. Electronic fuel injectors do stick or stay open causing very poor or no start condition. Make sure you have fuel delivery since you are positive that spark is present.
