good morning my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today
What motor is in the car??
4 cylinder 2.2L.
ok, you need to probe the negative side of the coil and watch for the light to flash while cranking. this will tell you if the module is working. if it is then possible coil failure, even though you replaced it, or a bad cap and rotor.
I will attach a wire diagram for you.
I have done that and there was no flash. I have changed the module twice. I'll pull the module and test it to double check. Whats crazy is i have checked other ford probes and even checked out new distributors and none of them have the same plug connection as mine even the mazda 626 which has the same motor is different. I have work today and Tomorrow so it will be monday or tuesday before i can check the module. (I have a wells module tester) if the module comes out good is there anything else you can think of.
is a stupid question but is the timing belt turning????
good. you can take your module to pepboys, they test for free. I used to work there and I had to test even the new ones as we always got bad new ones.
I have access to a module tester. I'm currently working at autozone but i wont be able to check mine until monday. I thought cam or crank sensor but this car doesnt have those.
good deal, keep me updated
Ok. I'll get back with you asap
I tested the controle module was bad im buying a new one on ebay.
The new one at autozone doesnt match the o.e. wrong wires. This one has a one year warranty its new and it matches the o.e. distributor. If my car starts then ill be happy.
Do i credit you now or later. I dont know if it would let me contact you or not after i rate you. So far you get the best rating.
On the ford probe it was the ignition controle module. I put the new distributor in and i also had to change the fuel pump and drain the gas. It ran ruff for 5 minutes then smoothed out. Jist needs brakes and she is road ready. Thank you for the help.
