Car will not crank. Have checked fuses. Have pulled plugs, am getting no fire. I have jumped the diagnostic Te1 to E1 as someone suggested to get the number of flashes and right now I have what seems to be an endless amount of flashes. Stopped counting at 2600 and started timing it, and am now at 36:00 minutes of flashing. I am sure it want end and that this must be the message. I have not pulled cap and rotor. Checked all relays I could find as well. I am clueless unless it is time to start at cap and rotor and just start parts replacement, but I am trying to get the right diagnosis this time. Thank you, and what do you think, . Any clues for me to follow in this.

No spark:

No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor /distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, ECM, Ignitor cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

The car died while I was going down the interstate and lossed power and for about three to four seconds and then for just one second, two at most, power came back, then it died alltogether. When I checked my plugs, they where almost disfifugred looking from the heat or something, almost melted where it sparks and around the area, and my engine has no run hot, is this a clue, or just replace and keep hunting. I know that is not why they are not sparkng, but maybe it is I hint.

Test the ignition switch rule it out. You could be losing power to the ignition coil when this happens crating no spark-Turn key to run check for power at the coil positive terminal.

It has been a while, had to be hospitalixed for a bit. Anyways I still have no fire, and have one more question before I start to just parts replace. Is there anyway to test to see if the computer could be the problem. I can jusmp it if I nned to or whatever, but I dont know if there is a way to test the computer without replaceing it, do you? Tomorrow I am going to replace the igniter first, and plugs and plug wires, because the igniter was abviously sending too much juice to them and they have melted a bit, at least deformed. I would like to know if you agree with my steps tomorrow, first igniter plugs and wires, then ignition, then computer. If not, what would be your steps in parts replacement, or can you think of anything else to check. I could not figure how to check for fire on the positive side ignition coil like instructed. I could not even find coil anywhere in my research, only ignition. Is there an ignition coil that I have missed that I could check, or is it part of the ignition. Thanks, have a good day.

Replaced the igniter and the coil and the spark plugs (they needed it), and it is still doing the same thing. Where do I go from here?

Test the distributor pick-up coil inside the distributor BTW do you have battery voltage to the coil?
