Its a 1992 GT. Car wont start, cranks but appears to have no spark. I replaced the module, coil pick up, and coil. Has no spark at the coil. I've read of faulty ingnition switches and recalls. I remember having my 1988Gt 's replaced back in 90. If the switch is bad COULD it crank over but NOT fire up? Any help would be great. It was running/starting fine a few days ago.

Do this...
Place a test light at the COIL +, turn on the key. If you have 12V there then the coil is possibly bad. It's most likely that there isn't and power to the coil. Some Ign switches being bad can do that.
Trace the issue of the coil+ wire back to where it get's it's power from.... Could be a fusible link....

I have a meter, and I checked it there. IF ( and thats a big if) I have set the meter correctly, I got 11.7 volts at the coil. I tried two differant coils with no change in car. Please keep the ideas coming. Me and electrical problems just met this week and were not the best of friends quite yet. Set the meter to Vdc / 200. Is that correct?

OK, I checked the coil for power, Has power. I checked the coil for resistance, no resistance. I checked the coil for spark, NO SPARK!!! I checked that the ground to the coil was good, it is. That leads me to where? The coil pick up? Thats brand new, but is it anygood? This thing started one day, and not the next. Cranks like crazy, just doesn't wanna fire up!!!!!!

Got it started! I put the old TFI Module back on the car. Was the new one faulty? I had it checked also and it checks OK. What the bleep is going on?
