So i have spent the greater part of the last year completely redoing my 88 formula. I have finally got everything reassembled, but cannot get spark to the plugs. The car ran fine before I took it apart. I replaced most of the sensors, but only cut into the wiring harness to replace the high pressure switch on the A/C compressor which now has a two wire connector. The compressor is new and so is the switch. When I turn the key to run the fan and blower come on. When I disconnect the high pressure switch they turn off. According to the manual, this means I have a bad sensor. Thought this might have some bearing on the no spark issue some way, but I can't figure how.
I have tried to disconnect the oil pressure switch to see if that might be the problem, and when I did, I would get electricity to the connector to the coil. I wasn't getting any oil pressure reading prior to this either. The gauge would stay flat when I would crank the motor. When I disconnected the oil pressure switch, it would spike out, but I would get juice to the coil. I replaced the oil pressure switch, but still have no pressure reading at the gauge and the car still won't start. I unhooked my new coil and used the old one that worked fine before dis-assembly, and still no spark.
I then checked my ICM. Took the new one off and installed the prior older one that worked before the dis-assembly and nothing... Had the new ICM checked, and it tests fine...
What in the world could be wrong? I am not the best with electrical stuff, so if you have any suggestions, could you be so kind as to explain what I need to check and how like you were telling a novice please? I'd really appreciate any help anyone might be able to provide. I want my car back on the road and have spent a ton of money redoing the entire car....suspension, cooling, A/C, new heads, new exhaust, new front battery...essentially the car is mechanically new!
