My jeep and I are having a disagreement, hoping someone can help me win this argument!
It will turn over, but not start. Plugs, wires and distributor are good, it isn't getting spark. I replaced the ignition coil today, and it still won't start. What else can I check?
The fuel pump is engaging and has a new filter. Next?
Well Lynn, how did the problem start? It was running and shut off, or just one day you went out and it wouldn't start? There are some pretty good threads for troubleshooting no start situations, I will see if I can dig up a good one. How about your grounds, have you checked them? You can always do the simple unplug cps, then plug it back in, if it starts that is usually where your issue is. I think that is usually related to loose connectors. Check for codes.

Do you own a noid light set? If not, would you be willing to spend $20 to buy a set? They're essentially fast-responding test lights with pins you can plug into various connectors for. I have this set here;
You can plug a noid light into where the coil would normally be. When you crank, it will flash, indicating it's getting the proper signals to the coil. You can also use them in place of injectors (to verify injectors are getting signal) and various valves.
What this will tell us is if the problem is in the coil/ignition/dizzy/wires, or if from the ECU/Power supply itself.
