1997 Vauxhall Vectra

Electrical problem
1997 Vauxhall Vectra V8 Front Wheel Drive Manual 60000 miles

our vectra, since being moved a few feet down he drive on xmas day, now will not start. We thought it was the battery, but having used jump leads have found it isnt. It just wont spark for some reason.

Get a starting fluid or ether and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
