Answers :

I would check to see if you have power going to the coil. I would also suspect the pick up coil in the distributor. The battery wouldn't have anything to di with it.

96 cirrus 2.5. No spark. distributor has 2 wire connectors , 1 has several wires , the other has only 1 wire. When I turn the key , the one that has only 1 wire gets 12 V , but it only lasts for a couple of seconds , then goes down to 0 v . My thinking is that this wire is to energize the coil , and should stay at 12 V to give the coil power to make spark for the Distributor. Can anyone tell me if that is suposed to be a continuos 12 v or not .

I have a 99 VW golf 2.0 single over head cam. I was having a ticking noise for like 6 months and I came to a stop sign and it died when I hit the gas to go. Every time I started it and put it in gear it would continue to shut off. I let it sit for a few days and now it won't start. I changed the spark plugs and plug wires and the ignition coil and it still won't start. It turns over but I'm not getting any spark from the spark plugs. How can I get my car running again?

I tried the LED continuity test light between pins 2 and 3 going to the coil - when ignition is on (per Chilton?s manual) - LED lights, even while cranking, but it?s suppose to pulse, not stay constan
