Electrical problem
1989 GMC Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual

While driving, my truck just shut down. I have no spark. I replaced the plugs, wires, Dist. Cap, rotor, ICM and coil. I have 12v at the coil and still no spark. Could it be the PCM or the ECM?

Disconnect the 2 wire connector that connects to the ignition module and using an OHM meter probe the disconnected 2 wire electrical connector that goes to the PICKUP COIL and you should have an OHM reading of 500 to 1500 ohms.

Also check each lead of the pickup coil to be sure that neither wire is shorted to ground.
