Whats make a Ignition coil not get fire

Asked by Cameron Mar 28, 2020 at 09:03 PM about the 1989 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got a f150 that is not getting fire. Seems like it's
not getting fire from the ignition coil. But it has a
new coil, Distributor Cap, and Rotor. What would
make the coil not get fire.

1 Answer


It could be your crankshaft position sensor, which measures the rotation speed (RPMs) and the precise position of the engine crankshaft in relation to top dead center. If you had an intermittent stalling condition before this no start, this is most likely your culprit. It is located behind your engines main pulley. This may also produce a P0335 code if you have a check engine light on.. Hope this helps you.
