doesnt something with the seatbelt disable ignition? I wouldnt know 100% because the PO bypassed that anyways and I have harness's. Might want to look into that.
Replaced plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, module, hall sensor (entirely new distributor), battery
No spark at all, just died on me while I was driving Northbound on I-5.
Not sure what else I need to replace or check.
I've gone through the grounds, sanded down all the grounds, replaced them even.
What might have happened to my poor 86 Golf.
The cars details:
1986 VW Golf 2 Dr 1.8 8V CiS
5 Spd ACH Manual Transmission
Try an ignition switch if you haven't already. Terminal 15 runs through it, it's important! Do you have 12v and ground through the coil and distributor while cranking and in run position? Is the ignition control module switching the coil at this point? Maybe that's the module you speak of? It's in the left side of the rain cowl and is a common failure. Try plugging in another one. Do your basic wiring checks before all else.
Friend's don't let friends apex early..
The ignition control module is the module I was talking about. Spent most of the day trying to get it, my dad came over and helped me check all the wiring twice over, the volts running through everything. As it sits right now, it should start and run as it did a few weeks ago. Just quit working x.x I thought it was the heater core due to liquid build up on the carpet within the carpet of the passenger side, so I spent $4 and go what I needed to bypass the heater core. Still nothing.
Same thing happened to me while at a stop, it was dead battery for me and then when I put the new one in I went straight to autozone so they could test the new battery and alternator, my alternator tested bad, I havent had it to long either, so replaced alternator and everythings good now. So your car cranks, but doesent start, or is it not cranking at all.
