    Crank, No spark

    Hey folks!

    I have a 93 mighty max with a 2.4 fuel injected.

    Was driving home and the truck died, It will crank but it looks like there is no spark. Cant seem to figure out why.

    What I've done:

    Checked spark using spark tester, no spark at the plugs.
    Checked spark at coil, no spark.
    Checked Voltage going to coil, reads 12 volts.
    Checked distributor is turning when cranked, It is.
    coil was tested at 1.3ohms... dont know if low or high?
    Coil was replaced, still no spark.

    Where should I troubleshoot from here?

    Found something interesting. The fuse block directly off the battery terminal had a 20A fuse blown. Replaced Fuse. Blew immediately after cranking, still no start.

    Any idea where this goes to?

    Ended up to be a pinched wire behind the intake tube rubbing against the bracket for the throttle cable. Sent 12 volts through the throttle cable and started it on fire.... not even joking. Clipped the burnt wire and re wire loomed.

    Good Job, the 20 amp fuse is a fusible link, was going to ask you which one it was...
