1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles
The car stalled out at a light then would not start up again. Once we pushed it to a safe location we pulled a plug and watched for spark to discover there was none. We then checked all the plugs, still no spark. We replace the rotor cap (the contact was a little burnt). Same result. We had the coil tested and it tested out just fine. We then had the ignition module tested and it test faulty, so we replaced it and still no spark. we went in with a DMM and tested for power. There is 12V going to the Ignition module and the Coil. I tested the connection to another part in the distributor, I do not know what it is called but it looks like a sort of pickup. If you are looking at the distributor on the car with the cover off it is in the upper left of the distributor. I do not know how to test this unit but I do know that it is not getting power. What could the problem be?
