Chevy Suburban 1996 1500 4x4 140,000 I went outside to start my truck the other day and after many tries I found that it wan't going to happen. When I started checking it out I found that there was power going all the way to the distributor so I replaced the rotor and the cap but after that it is still not comming out to reach the wires. Any advise on what I should change next?

Check the resistance in the plug wires with a multimeter

Check the module, some parts stores can test it to see if it's bad.

If you can get someone to turn it over when the sun has already gone down and look for arcing around the ignition coil wire or the plug wires
