Replace the distributor and ignition control module and still won't start, Replace
plugs and wires - nothing

hello welcome to the site

have you checked to see if their is fuel pressure at the fuel rail ?

 

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

No, don't have the equipment, but can definitely smell it. No spark at the spark plugs.

Control module tested bad and was replaced with new one and new spark plugs and wires.

do you have a volt ohm meter ?

was the icm that was replaced a factory part or after market parts store brand?

AM part from Auto Zone. Is there anything else we should be checking?

ok i have a feeling you might have a faulty part not to uncommon for these parts

if you have a volt ohm meter i can send you a test for the coil and icm.

FOLLOW these steps to rule out a faulty coil or icm.

 

Engine Won't Start?

Check Coil & ICM Revised 04/02/08

On models with distributor equipped ignition systems,

the ignition coil and the ICM (ignition control module

[igniter]) by doing this procedure:

NOTE: Wire colors for wires referenced here can

vary between models, so use the appropriate ETM to

ID them.

 Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and watch the

MIL (malfunction indicator lamp).

  •  If the MIL doesn't come on or stays on, refer to

MIL Basics on this page.

  •  If the MIL comes on for two seconds and then

goes off, continue with step 2.

 Check for battery voltage at the positive wire

going to the coil and at the positive wire going to

the ICM.

  •  If you have battery voltage, continue with step

3.

  •  If you don't have battery voltage, check for an

open between the ignition switch, the ICM, and

the coil.

With a voltmeter connected between the coil

negative wire and ground, record the cranking

voltage.

 Disconnect the negative wire between the coil and

the ICM. Then, connect the voltmeter between the

coil negative wire and ground, and record the

cranking voltage. (This is the same test as step 3,

except the wire to the ICM is

disconnected.)

 If you get about 8V for step 3, and 10V for step 4,

install a new coil, and retest.

 If you get about 10V for steps 3 and 4, install a

new ICM, and retest.

Is there an electrical diagram online and is there an inline fuse for the ignition system?

their is 2 fuses in the under hood fuse box and 2 in the under dash fuse box.fuse 18 and fuse 24 in the srs fuse block.

and 32 and 31 in the under hood fuse box.

if these fuses are good then we need to perform the test i posted for you.

do you have a volt ohm meter ?

 

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
