Default 91 Suzuki Carry no spark

Hi people. I am new to this site, and am having a no start problem with my 91 Carry. It was running fine,then shut off and refuses to start. It cranks ok, but no spark to the plugs. I also checked, and no spark coming from the ignition coil to the Distributor. I have power to the coil on the secondary wires and the resistance between them is 1.8 ohms and between the primary and secondary is 25.7 ohms. Everything else seems fine, fuel pump is running, rotor button is turning, all fuses are good. Just no spark from the coil.. any ideas? bad coil?Thanks in advance.

Hi, thanks, I visually checked everything, but not sure how to actually test the pickup coil and Module.

Unfortunately the electrons cannot be seen by naked eye.!.

If you have power to the (+) side of coil, either a MM or a test light on the (-) side of coil, to ground, should flash when engine cranked..

Yes, exactly... I have power to both sides of the ignition coil with the key on, but no flashing while cranking, just a steady 12V on both...

Then the ignitor is not functioning.. follow the (-) side for location.. not sure if yours is in dist or external

The coil fires on ground opening (unloading).

Greetings! If that is a ECM model, do not put a jumper to the Module box as it can short out a diode as they did to mine, cost P6000 for repairs. The problem I am experiencing now is the same, it is the part that replaced points on old style distributor, inside the cap, pickup coil maybe?

That is why you must use a load (light bulb)..

In that case, it must be the module, it is inside the distributer on this model. Thanks for the help, will see about replacing it and go from there.
