I have a 1981 nissan 280zx won't start any more, I have recently put a new coil battery and fuses in my 280zx. I only just replaced the coil because it wouldn't start. I have power to the coil but no spark

Check distributor. May be removed and brought to parts store to br tested. Mark the rotor to distributor housing and engine before removing. These marks will aid in installing a new one.

Ignition control module. Ignition module pickup inside the distributor. Check the primary side of the coil to make sure the circuit is being opened and closed. Make sure you have power to the distributor. If not, trace the wires until you find out why.
