      i have a 1996 2.0 aba 8v

      the vag com codes
      0075 warning lamp
      16795 secondary injection pump
      16684 random cyl misfire
      16685 cyl 1 misfire detected
      16687 cyl 3 misfire detected

      the car was running fine went into the store came out and no start issue.

      i have checked the coil and it will crank and deliver 1 spark and nothing else

      the injectors and fuel pump check out ok

      i have also used a spare coil and a spare distributor to help diagnose the spark issue with the same 1 spark then nothing else

      where else should i look ?

      Try the search function next time, but look at your crank position sensor.

      i don't have money to throw parts at the car ..

      would vag-com throw a code for the crank sensor if that was the issue ?

      i searched and did not see any post showing my symptoms

      i see 1 spark from the straight off the coil but no signal to the spark plug

      when a crank position sensor is bad would it die over a long time or die immediately ?

      i threw in a new crank position sensor and still the same issue

      i did check power at the coil connector and the multimeter read 12.8v key on power and 5v during cranking

      anyone else have the same issue?
