Hey everyone, after racv towed my car (no spark) i replaced the coil, leads, cap and rotor button, after which there was no spark still.

Since replacing all those and opening the fuse box (beside coolant) the engine fuse was blown (30 amp).

With the spark plug still out, not grounded i took the HEGO 30amp fuse and put it into the engine fuse clip.

After which i kicked the engine over, IT SPARKED! But it had fried the engine fuse i just switched over.

(Note: there was no fuse in HEGO when engine was kicked over) :)

Does anyone have any ideas?
Many thanks
Matt

bem on lh side steering wheel,lower dash has 3-4 plugs,top and bottom,make sure plugs are in---from there the wiring goes to lpg dead motor switch in mine its just above the brake pedal,can kick them loose when using brake,also check for burnt wires--something is shorting.does the gas tank have the solenoids clicking to open the gas lines----this is controlled by the dead motor unit.it has to have a motor running signal from the coil.

Hey thanks for that, i went and checked under the dash and everything looks fine.

Auto elec came out today, it isnt the pump itself, but its in the pumps wiring somewhere, he rigged up a wire in the cabins fuse box with a 15amp fuse that crosses a red wire from the lpg/petrol switch to an accessory fuse terminal (only one clip in terminal in the terminal itself).

It will go into him today and be fixed by tomorrow, f**k cars, lol
