93 dakota no start.

My cousins 93 dakota will not start. He said it cranks over fine, but has no spark. He said it appears to have fuel pressure. Im getting it towed here tomorrow. I was just wondering of common things that break on these. He said he tried a new coil and it didnt help, and also an ignition rotor. I need to verify it is getting fuel. Dont the ecu's go bad on these trucks? Thanks, ill give you more info tomorrow,injp ect ect. Thanks

I dont think so. He said he is not getting spark at the coil either. He took the plug wire off the coil and checked for spark, and there was none.

Check all the wiring first off. Once you make sure that your wiring is right, take a voltmeter to it and make sure you're getting electricity to everything. Change the plug wires and dizzy cap, and you'll probably get spark.

Well if its not getting spark down at the coil, would a cap and plug wires make any diffrence, assuming everything is getting voltage?

YES! If everything's getting voltage, that's the only thing standing in the way. You can clean the points on the old cap, and try new plug wires first. If it sparks, it will be a good idea to get a totally new cap. Also, HEI? My mustang's got a standard ignition, so I have to constantly check my points.

Doc here,

Check the crankshaft position sensor, if this is defective it will kill spark..and is the most common component to fail in a "No spark Condition".
