its not your ignition its your crankshaft sensor that's the same problem i had.

have you replaced and or tested both coils? are you getting no spark on the intake and the exaust sides?

ignition coil! mine did the same

There are several reasons why a 1996 Achieva engine cranks but will not fire. A few of the reasons could be a bad ignition control module, ignition coil pack, or a crankshaft position sensor.

Would be in the distributer or the ignition module

check for spark at plugs,coil.check you are getting fuel check ignition condensor

"Check Engine" light comes on when you turn ignition switch on and should go off when engine cranks.

Your ignition switch is worn out. you will need to replace it.

No gas or no ignition gives the same result: the car cranks but doesn't even try to start.

A 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine that cranks but is not starting and has no dash gauges is experiencing an electrical system failure. This can be a result of a faulty ignition switch or damaged wiring.

Some possible problems when your vehicle cranks, but won't start are a bad crankshaft position sensor, or a faulty ignition switch. Another possibility is a loose or broken wire that runs from the sensor to the PCM.

the first thing I would check is, fuel, spark, coil, ignition module

Change plugs, check your ignition coil. an check your batt(it needs to be fully charged)

Answer Bad fuel pump what do you mean won't start? does the engine cranks or what does it do when you turn your key? answer that and i might be able to help you.

If it cranks just fine once it gets going then, most likely, the starter has to be replaced.
