Customer Question
DF 175 Suzuki has...

DF 175 Suzuki has no spark at spark plug and I have tried 2 different cylinders what can cause no spark? what signals does ecm require to send signal to coil?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Coil is not receiving signal to spark.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Yeah I just changed out the driven gear and had the power unit lifted up a few inches to do so.

I marked all gears to ensure no movement but if I did affect the timing (CMP and CKP sensors) would they prevent spark? there is no fault codes coming up. Motor cranks over fine.
