crank angle sensor, ecu, coils or wiring.

Check your fuses first

the starter harness runs down the drivers side harness, and the motor harness runs down the passenger side, a common problem is when working on a TII a person will hit the back of the alternator with the intercooler and ground it out, blowing a fuse.



anytime you have an electrical problem, check all the fuses first.

do you have NO spark or just no spark in trailing or leading?



to check take one plug out leave the wire on it find somewhere to lay a wrench or something conductive and lay the spark close to it and try to turn it over if you hear loud cracking (or have someone to watch you have spark) for some reason when i was working on my car the spark was gone in the rear rotor on trailing and leading but it wasnt the coil but after dicking around and switching the plugs i got spark on all of them *shrug*

This topic is 9 months old, your car hasn't run in 9 months?



It seems odd that there is no spark at all, leading and trailing coils and/or ignitors failing at exactly the same time?

a bad cas/cas wire/ecu will cause that. could also be the main relay but other stuff would not work as well
