Q: No spark with new ignition coil

asked by on

We have replaced the igiontion coil and still no spark. We have tested the ignition fuse and it has no power ether. Have no idea where to go from there.

My car has 104000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You probably have a bad crankshaft sensor. If the computer does not read a signal from the crank sensor when trying to start the car, it does not send power to the fuel pump or ignition coil. A certified technician from YourMechanic can assist in the replacement of this sensor if need by.
