I cannot get my 2000 Bravada to start. At first I thought it was the distributor, since after it rains mine can be difficult, and usually requires drying with a low-power heat gun. When this did not work I listened for the fuel pump, which did come on when I put the key in, and both the exhaust and engine (by way of air intake port) smelled like gasoline, leading me to believe it was an electrical, not fuel, problem. I tested the volts at the distributor cap and saw that there was no power reaching it. The rest of the powered things on my car work fine (radio, windows, power seats etc.) So it seemed strange that there was no spark plug power. The starter sounded fine, so I guess something is grounding out somewhere along the way, or I have a bad coil. Any advice on what might cause this?
