can ignition coil control circuit high voltage (P1351) prevent a 99 suburban from starting
Thanks for visiting Just Answer,
Yep this code can cause a vehicle not to start. Replace the distributor cap and rotor first and then recheck operation. The cap and rotor usually fixes this issue with this code.

If you want to test:
Check for 25KV out of the coil wire and the plug wires. Look for erratic spark out of the wires. Compare with each other. Spark should jump 1/2" and be blue in color.
