What could cause a 1994 Ford Probe GT that has a new distributor still have no spark?
okay ! I have posted that it probly is the crank postioning sensor ford still makes things seem way more diffacult than they really are you cant find any specs for anything to make sure the part is bad or not one of the reason that ford is headed for the scrap pileIn my 94 Probe GT, I could get no spark out of my car, and found out that it was the distributor. Word of advise...spend the extra $ and let someone else put it on for you. I did mine myself twice, and both times, the seals came loose and water got in, causeing the motor to rev up and down while driving, and then cutting off at 2500 RPM. It was not good!
my recomendation is pull distributer cap and turn over the engine look to see that your rotor button is spinning, if its not spinning check you timing belt, but if it is spinning check on replacement of your coil pack and/or your entire distributer once all else fails...
My Timing belt is brand new and it is in perfect time...
THIS IS NOT AN ANSWER IT IS THE STORY BEHIND THE QUESTION
I bought the car after it had set for a year or so, put on new timing belt and water pump, car ran great for two days then suddenly when I hit 4500rpm my tach flip out and the car died. I checked for spark and got nothing. I double checked timingbelt, replaced the Crankshaft position sensor and the distributor.......I'm Lost
Have you tried resetting the Fuel Pump Cut Off switch in the left rear corner of your trunk? Is the "Fuel Cut-Off" lamp illumated on the dash when you try to start? This is a perplexing problem...seems like as the cars age and the distributors begin to wear down they send to much current to the immobilizer units in the cars(these trip the Fuel Cut-off Switch in the trunk). The excess current evidently erode or overheats the soldering on the chip board of the immobilizer unit, thus, triggering the fuel cut-off switch to activate.
All of that happening has eventually caused my probe to fail to start at all now...the fuel pump is not pumping and there is no spark being sent to the plugs...all a result of the immobilizer believing it has a problem.
The one other item it can be is a DOCUMENTED problem in Ford's Technical Service Bulletins where Ford admits there is a problem with corrosion on the wires for the immobilizer & fuel cut-off switch link.
I am in the middle of trying to fix mine. Good luck.
Hey buddy Why don,t u check your fuses take a ohm meter Check the resistance of Primary Wire or secondary wire. If there is no current in the primary wire that means there is problem with your Iginition relay change your relay u don,t need to reset your fuel system just change your relay that u can find when you wil pop the hood it should be green color. I think in Canadian it would cost u 106 try that hit me back
Ok I would say do a paperclip diagnostic on it it will throw you codes to check my probe threw me the code for my crank shaft postioning sensor and also could be the distributor could have a bad ignition module on it if the 94 is the same as the 93 which i think it is moisture gets in from teperature changes hot to cold ect... use a paperclip from your ten pin to your ground pin on your diagnostic block located by your battery hope this could help ive been thru it all with mine and found myself turning in distributor after distributor on warranty to fix my problem im still looking to find out if there is anyway to prevent the moisture from getting into the distributor
There could be several things to cause no spark, but one I have ran into is the Ignition Control Module inside the distributor or the coil inside is bad. If your plug wires are good and your wiring to the distributor checks out, then it's either the coil or the ignition control module. Both are inside the distributor.
Yes, a bad distributor can cause the engine to fail to run, the distributor (distributes) a spark to the spark plugs that ignite the air/fuel mixture, if it is malfunctioning there might be no spark at all, there may be spark at only a few spark plugs, or the output may be intermittently bad which can make troubleshooting difficult.
could be your igniion coil. It is located inside of the distributor cap. If you havent gave your car a tune up recently, it could be your spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap or the rotor inside of the distributor. And if all these things are ok, make sure the engine is getting fuel. If not, it could be a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump could be messed up. The fuel injectors…
The computer uses the pick up plate in the distributor to know when to activated the coil to cause a spark to go down the coil wire to the distributor cap and through the cap and rotor to an individual plug wire to the spark plug.

Your 1992 Chevy Caprice 5.0 has no spark and will not start what could cause this where should you look?
You will still have spark, car will try to start or backfire. If no spark at all the plugs see if you have GOOD spark from coil. If coil is working then you will find the problem in between the coil and the plugs, probably a distributor component issue. The ballast resister is a possible cause also.
You have 93 probe that want start it want fire out of the distributor you have change the distributor 3x with all new parts even change the main fuse still no spark?
You don't have spark from the distributor and your fuel cut off light is on All you did was change the plugs and wires on your 94 Probe GT V6 What could you have possibly messed up?
If any part in the ignition circuit is defective it can result in no spark at the spark plugs. Some components to check" The ignition switch could have failed. The engine computer or associated wiring may have failed. The distributor could be bad or have a bad component. The pickup coil may have failed. The ignition module can fail. The rotor or the distributor cap could have failed. The coil may be bad, or associated…
