Hi kids, I've seemed to have lost my spark on my 1989, 2600 DLX ute. (No spark at any of the plugs). Have power at the inside fuse and at the ign coil and the ECM relay clicks when the key is turned on. (By the way where is the ECM located? Under the engine bay fuse box?) I've tried to get a workshop manual and I ended up sending away for one. Any suggestions, besides setting fire to it? Regards, Gerry.

I'd be checking/suspecting the 'Crank Angle Sensor'

Hi Tony H, I'm still waiting for my manual to arrive so I don't know my way around under this bonnet yet. Where is the "crank angle sensor"?
Thanks, Gerry.

Bearing in mind Im not familiar with your engine.... it would be either on the front of the engine around the crankshaft pulley/timing case or it could be around the flywheel/bell housing area.
The 'kick panel' aonther contributor has mentioned is the plastic panel under the dash beside your right foot OR it could be the passengers side .... so beside the passengers left foot.
Best wait till your manual arrives have a read ....if in doubt consult your local mechainic

Also check for oil in the distributor.

I had one, same thing turned out to be a small relay behind the drivers side kick panel. Could be your problem?

Hi Bluefella, don't want to sound dumb but what is the "kick panel"? Thanks, Gerry.

Hi Gerry
It's the plastic panel that is on the drivers side near the accelerator.
