Q: No spark to ignition

asked by on

My truck does not have any spark to the ignition.

Lack of spark to the ignition system on your GMC Sonoma can be caused by a variety of components. These possibilities range from the ignition control module failing or not receiving proper battery voltage, to a faulty ignition switch and bad crankshaft position sensor. Due to this wide spectrum of possibilities, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and diagnose why your Sonoma has no spark. They will have the experience and tools needed to determine exactly why there is a no spark condition as well as make the repairs necessary to get your GMC running again quickly.
