HEy all,

This is my first time hear so I hope I am in the right section. I trouble shooted my 88 delta 88 with the wire in the fuse box to get the codes. I found out that my coilpack was not fireing at all so I replaced it and still nothing. The car will not turn over to save my life. The codes that I came up with were 39, 43 and I think the first was 18 if I am not mistaken. I lost my "code" book and realy need help. Thanks for all your help in advanced.

Hey Dennis,
I show no code 18 in my database, 39 refers to the TCC circuit (torque converter lockup solenoid) and 43 refers to the knock sensor circuit. These codes will not cause the condition you have. When you say "will not turn over" do you mean cranks over and will not start or not crank over at all?

Going to assume the first, the 2 possibilities are the ignition module or the crankshaft sensor. You can remove the module and take it to say a autozone or advanced auto for testing to see if its bad. The crank sensor will need different testing. If the ignition module is ok then repost here and I'll send along the diagnostic procedure for the crank sensor. Let me know!

Hey, thanks for the reply, Well, the car turns over just fine. The problem is I am not getting any spark at all. I put in a new coil pack, in my case its a single coil with 6 plug ends. The car turns like it wants to start but I am just not getting spark period. I will check what you said though. Oops, I ment that the car cranks its just not running due to no spark to do it. I kinda thought it was that sensor with the magnet in it that sends a signal to the computer to tell it when to fire, Dunno if I am off on that. Thankyou very much for your help

Your very welcome! Get the module tested and we'll go from there! And the sensor w/ the magnet is the crank sensor, so your were headed in the right direction!
