Is somebody going to answer my question??

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If you have no spark then check all your fuses first and for power to the ignition coils for a possible failed coil. If ok then you could have a bad crank sensor. Is the tach responding?

Experts arent employees of the site. Most have full time jobs and repair businesses so the availability depends on who is logged in at the time of your question.

I look at my fuse and relay diagram and I don't see any marked for ignition coil
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 1 year ago.
By chance do you have a scan tool that reads live data? If so you can watch for RPM signal while cranking to see if the crank sensor is reading. Let me know

I'll let you know when I get off work

I would not be too concerned with the diagram as there are IGN circuit fuses and possibly under the hood on some models as well. I always test all fuses with a test light for power on both sides with the key switch on. Just probe the top metal tabs on the fuses and any with power on one side are bad.

Check relays too by swapping with a known good one for example..... use the horn relay if the horn works and the repay is known to be good. Most commonly if the IGN fuses are good the crank sensor is the cause not giving the PCM/ECM signal to fire. I log in periodically throughout the day and eves in between jobs for follow ups.
