1986 Ford f150 cranks but wont start

Asked by May 09, 2017 at 03:39 PM about the 1996 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The starter went out and was replaced and ran for a short time but then quit
runnin. It cranks but wont start. We replaced the coil, and the ignition control
module. We checked the distributor and the spark plugs, they are good. There
is no spark from the coil to the spark plugs and we can't figure out what to do
to get it going again.

Check for power on the positive side of coil, if you don't check ignition fuse, if you do then check for a trigger signal on the negative side of coil while cranking, if you have a trigger signal then the coil is bad, if no trigger signal then you either have a bad ignition module and or a distributor stator that you just replaced or a wiring problem.... by,ts

We checked the fuses

On the 87 I was dealing with. It had no spark which was caused by a tps sensor
