What is wrong with your 1981 Buick Park Avenue if it will crank but not start all after you have changed the ignition module and plugs?

the only things u need 2 start a vehicle is spark, gas, & compression.......the gas u can smell the spark u can check w/ a screwdriver by putting it in the sparkplug boot and touching it 2 the block while someone tries 2 turn the engine over & the compression u can hear....if your car sounds pretty much normal when it's trying 2 start then your compression is good if it sounds like it's turning over way 2 fast then u have a compression problem if all 3 r present then u r probubly looking @ a timing chain that has jumped or a timing belt that has slipped

what is the wiring position for the ignition module on a 1990 Buick Park Avenue?

under the coil pack in the engine compartment. The coil pack is where the plug wires hook into it.

Disconnect the battery. Remove the ignition coils. Remove the ignition control module that was under the coils, and replace it.
