Having problems with your 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer ?

No spark Used vehicle quit running due to no spark.  Original wiring harness was ruined, apparently by underhood fire, and home made replacement looks like it connected all components correctly.  Could find no defect in coil, signal pickup at distributor, running resistor or universal type ignition switch.  Module was working properly according to parts manager of auto store with electronic testing equipment.

I've been trying to solve a problem on this jeep for a while. I get a spark on the initial start then nothing and then when I release the key I get another spark and that is it. i've tried a new ignition module, a new pickup coil, a new ignition switch, a new muc, computer. Nothing has solved the problem. I have followed all my diag. procedures and they have led me back to the ignition mod. or the pickup coil. But when I replaced them it still would not start. Any ideas out there that would hel

I have a 91 ford mustang 2.3L 4 cyl that started running like **** today. It sounds like it's on 3 cylinders. I checked the spark from the plugs to the ignition coils. Of the 8 only 3 were sparking on the rear coil. I switched the power plugs on the coils and managed to get spark on 2 plugs from each coil. Is this more likely a computer issue than a coil issue? Do I need to replace both coils?

1994 Lexus LS400 has intermittent no spark. replaced ignitors, verified crankshaft position sensor resistance between terminals is within specification, verified ignition coils are good and receiving signal. temperature of vehicle does not effect this problem either way. It has spark, starts, and runs intermittently. When not running it is because of no spark. Anything else to check before assuming I must replace the ECU?

Hi, my father has a Hyundai lantra (1999) the car runs ok as normal, but could suddenly cut out. It could run normal and when we switch it off and come back to it 5-10 minutes later it might not start. We checked the plug leads ignition coils and found when this happens there is no spark coming from the coils. Sometimes if we keep trying it will start up as normal. It could also run normal for a whole day and suddenly it will happen again. It has a new battery and is working fine, but will event

... Peugeot Liberte

The starter on my pickup keeps running even after the ignition key is turned off and removed. I suspect the ignition switch is faulty. I know it is on the steering column bolted to the lock cylinder, but I need to know any tricks to removing it and I need to know which wire sends the signal to the starter so i can test it. I assume the signal wire to the starter should have no power when the key is not in the 'cranking' position?
