So stick with me to the end, and I am sure we should be able to get this issue resolved for you!
If you remove the distributor cap and turn the engine over, does the rotor turn?
Also do you have any codes or what codes did you have before any repairs were done?

my code reader took a powder after help from my grandson have not been able to read since day after it quit
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
on e of our friends said they heard of the key battery might be dead or low causing the on off problems
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
Well I can certainly say, allot and I mean allot of After Market electrical parts never work right. So I never recommend using them.
Before we can go any further we need to scan this car to see what codes you may have. It's very odd to have no spark with no codes. The no spark means the computer is not seeing the engine turning over.
Does this truck have any type of after market alarm also? Try locking and unlocking the truck using the key in the door
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
Key Battery is for push button start cars. Not cars that use keys. Plus I don't think your truck even has a chip key.
Let me know.. about the codes and locking and unlocking the truck.
I am stepping out and heading home. I will be back on line in about 1/2 hour or so..

got code scanner shows po 340 camshaft sensor A circut need starting pouint to trace circut
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
Thank you... The P0340 is a Cam Sensor code which is part of the Distributor. So you have a distributor problem. If you put a after market distributor in, after market electrical parts never work right. When it comes to electrical parts you always want to stick with the dealer. If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.Thanks Jay!
