  • Crank but no Start

    I had no issues at all today when I was driving my 96 Saturn SC2. Then I hopped in to start it tonight (its cold out) and it wouldn't start. It would quickly crank over but no sign of wanting to start. The last time I saw this (twice before actually) it was a burned out EIS fuse. Its a 7.5 amp fuse. I believe that EIS stands for electronic ignition system. So I checked the fuse and found out it was indeed burned out. I quickly replaced the fuse with another 7.5 amp fuse but it still wouldn't start. I checked the fuse again and sure enough, it was burned out again. So I replaced it with a 10 amp fuse, because I really want to get home, and this time the fuse didn't burn out (sweet!) but the car wouldn't start (Doh!). So now I probably have something else that is shorted or burned up. Not sure what it could be. It could be the coil packs, although they are just a few years old. It could be the PCM, but that seems unlikely. I'm looking for ideas. My grounds are in really good shape. I don't have corrosion on any of the electrical items in the engine. What do you think?

    Tbone43. please see attached. it looks like the actual ignition module under the coil packs may be shot?

      DO check that entire run of wiring though. its not terribly long.
