I have a 94 escort that has no spark, I have changed the ignition module the coil pack and crank sensor. There is a signal at the crank sensor but doesnt seem to be getting to eec. When I crank the engine the engine light stays on. Please help
Do you
have the same problem?

Is this a TFI module? If yes have the distributor checked.
TFI's bolt to the distributor.

Sorry for the delay, my internet has been out for a few days, it's usually pretty reliable, but some type of critter chewed a wire and it took time to get cable folks to fix it... any way if it's not too late, test the wires at your crank sensor wire to the PCM . The wire is a shielded wire and bot wires should test under 5 ohms. Read all codes and post here, the MIL is on because it has stored at least one code here's how to read the code(s):

Well there something strange going on, I pulled the codes and there are mutiple, 15, 91, 13, 52, 21, 59, 34, 22. Is that a sign the eec is cooked?

Check Pin #1 blue/red wire at the PCM, it's the Keep alive power wire. And Pin 40 for ground Blk/Grn stripe.


http://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/62217_PCM_conn_close_1.jpg


Use a pin to pierce the wire and test with DVOM. DO NOT try to put test leads into the PCM Connector holes, it will probably damage them. After these check OK re do the flash codes test with engine off ke o, then again like this to get the real results:

I checked pin #1 has 12v and checked pin # 40 and it has good ground.I want to say also that this came about after I changed the head and timing belt, it was running prior to that. Ive checked all the wiring and eveything seems to be connected. Thanks for your time

To check the cylender id circuit and the PCN follow these steps, but if it ran b4 you did the head, are you sure it's timed right? PCM testing is step 7.
1) Continuous Memory Code 214 Code 214 indicates error has been detected in CID sensor input signal. Error could be due to a hard fault or an intermittent fault. Possible causes for this fault are: Open or shorted wiring harness. Faulty CMP sensor. Faulty ICM. Faulty PCM. Start engine. If engine starts, proceed to the following step. If the engine does not start, proceed to IGNITION SYSTEMS in the SYSTEM/COMPONENT TESTS - EEC-IV (1.9L) article in this section. 2) Attempt To Generate Code 214 Clear continuous memory codes. Start engine. Raise engine speed to 1500 RPM for 10 seconds. Return to idle speed. Raise speed to 1500 RPM for 10 seconds again. Turn ignition off. Perform KOEO SELF-TEST. If Continuous Memory Code 214 is not present, go to step 20). If Continuous Memory Code 214 is present, go to next step. 3) Check Continuity Of CID Circuits Disconnect CMP sensor. Disconnect PCM 60-pin connector. Inspect connector for damaged pins, corrosion and loose wires. Repair as necessary. Install EEC-IV Breakout Box (T83L-50-EEC-IV), leaving PCM disconnected. Measure resistance between CID or CID (+) test pin at breakout box and CID or CID (+) terminal at sensor wiring harness connector. On 1.9L, also measure resistance between test pin No. 42 and CID (-) circuit at CMP sensor wiring harness connector. Resistance should be less than.5 Ohms. If resistance is as specified, go to next step. If resistance is not as specified, repair open in circuit. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. 4) Check CID Circuit For Short To Power Turn ignition off. Ensure PCM and CMP sensor are disconnected. Ensure scan tester is not connected to vehicle. Turn ignition on. Measure voltage between CID or CID (+) test pin and test pin No. 40 at breakout box. If voltage is less than 1.0 volt, go to next step. If voltage is 1.0 volt or more, repair short to power in CID circuit. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. 5) Check CID Circuit For Short To Ground Turn ignition off. Ensure PCM and CMP sensor are disconnected. Measure resistance between CID or CID (+) test pin and pins No. 16, 40 and 46 at breakout box. Also measure resistance between test pins No. 41 and 42. If any reading is 10,000 ohms or less, repair short circuit. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. If all readings are more than 10,000 ohms, go to step 7). 6) Check VPWR Circuit Voltage Ensure PCM and CMP are disconnected. Turn ignition on. Measure voltage between VPWR terminal at CMP sensor and negative battery terminal. If voltage is less than 10.5 volts, repair open in VREF circuit. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. If voltage is 10.5 volts or more, go to next step. 7) Check For Shorts In PCM Turn ignition off. Ensure CMP is disconnected. Connect PCM to breakout box. Measure resistance between test pin No. 41 and test pins No. 16, 37, 40, 42, 57 and 60 at breakout box. If all readings are more than 500 ohms, go to next step. If any reading is 500 ohms or less, replace PCM. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. 8) Check CMP Sensor Output Turn ignition off. Reconnect CMP sensor wiring harness connector. Set DVOM on AC scale. Start engine. Measure voltage between test pins No. 41 and 42 while varying engine RPM. If voltage varies more than 0.1 volt, replace PCM. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. If voltage does not vary more than 0.1 volt, replace CMP sensor. Remove breakout box, reconnect all components, and repeat QUICK TEST. 20) Check CID Circuit Enter wiggle test. See CONTINUOUS MONITOR MODE (WIGGLE TEST) under QUICK TEST. Observe analog VOM or diagnostic tester for indication of fault while performing following: grasp wiring harness near PCM wiring harness connector while observing VOM or diagnostic tester for fault indication. Shake and bend small sections of harness, working from PCM toward sensor. If fault is indicated, isolate fault and repair as necessary. Repeat QUICK TEST. If no fault is indicated, problem cannot be duplicated at this time. Proceed to SYMPTOMS in TESTS W/O CODES - EEC-IV (1.9L) article in this section. Also check the PCM ground at the left side of the motor on the transaxle. Black/yellow wires.

I am confused with your last post where did code 214 come from? The timing is good. Should there be power at the cam sensor with key on if so there is not, Also checked for ac voltage while cranking engine and have no voltage. Thanks

On the lower right side of the engine find the Crank sensor and check to see if the plug is firmly pushed on and if there is any visible damage to the wires. Yes the VRES wire at the sensors should have 5 volts with the key on. The 214 code is just a code that seems to match your symptoms. Check the PCM Power relay. # 7 in the diagram.

I have voltage to the crank sensor and an output signal. The cam sensor has no voltage at all. All wiring looks good Why woold there be 9 codes stored in the computer and not be able to clear them?Also checked for ac voltage from the crank at the icm. There is voltage at the crank sensor but nit at icm.

I would say if the PCM power and ground circuit is good, and you can't clear the codes, then the PCM/ECM is probably no good, but check the relay first.

Well I finally defeated it. It turned out to be the positive wire on the crank sensor.I did a continuity check between the sensor and the junction plug and the positive wire didnt have any so I ran a jumper from the sensor to the plug and it fired right up. Thank you very much for all your time I sincerely appreciate.
