Hey there. This is a common issue. I would need to know what repairs were performed originally to fully answer this question. There are quite a few things that would cause a no spark condition. If the car is in any sort of failsafe mode or if there are Check Engine Lights present, the car’s computer may not allow the car to start by not allowing any spark or fuel. A qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose your spark issue and perform any repairs required to get you back on the road.
