While trying to jump start my van I accidently crossed the cable wires and got a spark. I then replaced the battery and the van turns over but does not start. I replaced the two auto shutoff relays. No spark to plugs or distributor. What do I check next?

First steps first. Check all of the fuses in the vehicle. Under hood. Under dash. Everything. Next step is to check yoru fusible links. Make sure they are still good you can pull on the casing if it stretches its bad. Check continuity or volts is a better way to test it.

Welcome to the forum, thanks for the donation, did you check for primary voltage at the coil? If no voltage, check the circuits at the asd relay. I hope you didn't hurt the computer. You can use a testlite to check for voltage at the asd relay circuits.

I have to disagree with jdl on the test light part. Use a logic probe. Not that much more expensive and you run less risk of frying the computer if you mess up

Thanks for the reply. How do you check the primary voltage at the coil? Can I by a logic probe at a parts store?

All fuses are good, coil good, no power to the coil. I am trying to trouble shoot my way back to the computer. The next step would be to check the power to the new asd relay, then check the crank sensor. How do I do that? (The asd clicks when the key is on)

For power check on the positive side with key on. Should be battery voltage.

Is your vehicle coil on plug or distributed or coil pack type?

Ie. Coil on plug you have one ignition coil and separate wire harness for each of those

It's a 1999 V-6 3.0 liter with a distributor. How do I test the crank sensor and power to the ASD relay?
