No problem, you can disconnect battery on ODB 1 to clear the codes safely. I want to see if the codes come back as you crank the engine over. Thanks for your help.Lee
The wires on my harness were different colors, the orange one tested at 9v, the black one at .01v, and the yellow one at 5v. I also did the spark test with the wire that comes off of the the Ignition Module to the distributor. I tried two different ones and got no spark.
OK thank you I cleared my cache and see the thread. I need you to check the crank shaft sensor - see image and follow the instructions. Leon
it may or may not the crank is responsible for telling the computer when to fire # XXXXX of the firing order. We know the distributor is OK - the wiring to distributor is OK - voltage to distributor is OK - You rechecked all your work, connections, and all - so this is Primary now the Secondary ignition is what we have a problem with, NO fire to the plugs and that is the computer is not dropping ground or seeing a sense from crank shaft sensor. That is fine, but i hate for you to spend more money. Also, the cam sensor is new cause it comes with distributor. Try it if you like. Too, is the distributor rotor turning and aligned? How to check this is to pull # XXXXX spark plug turn engine over to where #1 piston is at top dead center (use a plastic straw to see when the piston is all the way up) and see where the rotor is pointing. If it is not pointing at number one then reset distributor to number one post on distributor cap.
The diagram you and google gave me say that the crank shaft sensor sits on top of the transmission housing. I havent changed it so it is probably original, 20 years and 225k miles, Im gonna guess its bad. , I set TDC every time I put a new distributor in but Ill check it when I get the sensor.
