I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn.

If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
i do need some more information
let me know!!
to make sure this is a california emissions vehicle?
ok on the coil there are 2 wires black in color do you have 15 power at the black wires key on ?
ok while cranking use a test light and from negative side of the battery to the negative side of the coil does it blink? of course this check has to happen after the stall and no restart
please let me know!!!!
crank the vehicle and see if the test light flashes. this will tell you that the ignition module is triggering the spark
well the module is not triggering the coil so now we need to check grounds for the digifant ecu
let me get that info!!
still getting the info the california car is harder to get info!!!
pin 19 of digifant to ground what is your resistance?
then at the digifant relay if you bypass the relay and then start the car does it still stall? jump 30-87
the coil has a 3 wire connector correct?
i thought so !!! i have the wrong diagram . i need to find the right one!!! hang on!!
have to check the archives and will not be able to get to them till tomorrow at work. did you try to scan for faults since its obd 1?
what scan tool you have ?
do you know of anybody that has vag com with the 2x2 cable adapter?
hey get the vehicle running and then when it stalls pop the connector off of the coil and then look at the pic attached. check with a LED test light and see if you have a trigger signal while cranking per the pic and let me know!!
ok do you have spark then at the coil?
if no spark then you will need a coil !!!
thanks for the clarification !!!
let me see my diagram i do believe there is a crank sensor on the car!!
the crank sensor is the distributor and you did say it has a new distributor correct?
ok first while cranking you have fuel pressure ? if you have fuel pressure then need to do wiring checks . see below!!
before we condemn the digfant ecu need to check the resistance when it stalls from pin 2 of the distributor to pin 37 of the ecu and pin 3 of dizzy to pin 38 of ecu . then pin pin 6 of ecu to pin 2 of the coil . what are the 3 resistances?
pop the cover of the connector and the numbers should be there
