Ok this thing has me confused, i bought it from a guy cause he couldn't
figure it out, this is what he did, replaces the plugs, wires, cap , rotor,
distributor, mass airflow sensor, computer. i went through a checked the
wiring, redid a couple wires i felt were suspicious, and i took the ignition
module to autozone and it failed thier machined test, so i replaced it, and
i still have no spark....it's the only thing wrong with the car! anyone have
ignition pickup? what do you mean?
coil has power, had it tested and tested good. don't know how to test power
from coil to ignition module, what wires do i test? same question for
ignition pickup. i don't have any wiring diagrams.
The ignition pick up is a hall switch, it can not be tested with a ohm meter (
except for testing the ground to ground ). It is checked powered up and with a
volt meter. You cheek for power in and check for a voltage state change on the
signal wire to the ignition module. It is a on/off device. If the distributor
has been changed, the pick up should be new. Also, it is not mass air flow per
say. It has a Vane Air Flow meter, that real large aluminum box in the air
intake. How do you know it has no spark? How did you test it? What else have you
i used a spark tested to check for spark (go figure), the coil was tested
for power at the connection goig into it, has 12 volts. coil itself was
tested with ohm meter and tests in spec.
had the ignition module tested and it came out bad, replaced it, no spark.
last thought would be the pickup coil, they replaced the distributor
but...who knows if they bought it new or not....
