    Ok I've searched through like 10 pages and no help with lack of spark issues.

    Car just died and now wouldn't start.

    94 Del Sol SI with stock D16 vtec.

    Fuses all look good. replace cap and rotor. checked and replaced ingition coil. Engine turns over but just will not start.

    What am I missing here.

    This is my only transportation and need running by Monday. Any ideals would be of great help.

    My Brothers has one but I think that its a obd0. Not sure since it was bought with a different engine and dizzy mounts up differently.

    His is a D15 non-Vtec mine is D16 with VTEC. Should that make any diff???

    I may have found one locally for a decent price just need to see if he still has it.

    With my luck he will have but will not solve my problem...

    AARRRGGGGGGG!!!!!!

    ok changing the Dizzy was no help. I checked for power going to the dizzy and getting 12v to dizzy but not getting any spark

    Again...

    I've replaced dizzy, ingition coil, cap and rotor.

    getting 12v to dizzy fuses are good, check for spark nothing. Doesn't make any sense..

    Any suggestions???????????

    I have thought of the main relay also but its location is unknow to me.

    I tried to find in manual (getting no love). Do you know where is is located I have another Sol here I can pull relays and such from minus engine parts and ECU (its an automatic).

    umm shot in the dark, check your engine ground, the one that goes to your cylinder head from the radiator support, if it is broken or all frayed, replace it.

    as far as the relay, it is located mounted near the door jamb, drivers side, under dash, near the fuse box.
