Hi All
my name is Robert . my car is a roadmaster wagon 1996
i bought the car a few years ago and due to work etc i havent done anything on it untill now..
basically the car works in everything.. starter cranks. radio , ac. pw.. the lot..
BUT.. it doesnt fire up!
i hade a mechanic with all the equipment look at the car and he told me the computer was gone.. so i bought a used one from ebay. the company re-programed it for my car so it should work..
but still no spark!

so my question "and i know its a stupid one" is of you can think of what is wrong.. my guess is that is some earth wire or similar that is not connect..
but maybe you know of something else that can be wrong?

thanks for the help
Robert from a Sweden in autumn..

How is your fuel pressure? Was it just running one day then not the next day? Don't get rid of your old PCM, it's probably still good. Do you have an alarm on it?

Hi
I bought the car for almost nothing back in AZ. " i live in Sweden"
the car was then smashed so we had to swap chassie "it came with a nice one"
+ fender, hood etc,
after that i have mounted all back again and know im triýing tó fire it up..
everything works. interior electrics. gas pump.. everything but the spark,
so i sent it to a mechanic that have top of the art equipment. after connecting it to the computer he figure out the the problem since to come from the car´s pcm.. so i bought another one from Ebay programmed for my car..
but still no spark.
i think its just a loose earth wire,, but was thinking if you have other ideas..

cheers
Robert
