NO POWER TO IGNITION SYSTEM

1989 Dodge Daytona • 4 cylinder FWD Manual •

I have a 1989 Dodge Daytona 2.5l non-turbo, manual trans. I was driving and the car shut off, has not started yet. Getting fuel out of the throttle body. No power to the coil. I get power to the relay. Tried connecting it with a jumper at the relay and I then get power to the coil. Replaced relay and still does not start. What else is required to operate my ignition system? Thank you.

Just so I'm clear, you are getting a nice cone-shaped spray of fuel from the injector?

There will be voltage to the coil and injector for just one second after turning on the ignition switch. It will come back when the engine is rotating, (cranking or running). If it doesn't come back, suspect the Hall Effect pickup under the rotor in the distributor.
