Customer Question

i have a 1999 dodge stratus and it will not spark. i have replaced the coil pack and there is still no spark. I'm not sure what sensor it could be, and i want to know what it is before i spend too much money on the wrong parts
JA: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?
Customer: i cannot pull up any ignition codes because the obd2 scanner will not pull them up without running the car for 5 miles
JA: What is the model of your '99 Dodge?
Customer: its the v4 4 door
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes i am. and what i have done so far is replace the coil pack and read for codes (even though they will not come up)
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: yes that the spark plugs are completely in tact

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

The crank sensor is the most likely cause, but you should have the computer scanned for codes and data before spending money on parts, I agree with you.

Thanks, Ron
