1982 Volvo 244 - No Spark 200 1982

Hi there,

The local mechanic who has been pretty good with this Volvo's has said I need to get: crank position sensor, distributor sensor (screw in type) and a cap & rotor. I am having trouble finding these parts. However, I think a 1982 has no crank position sensor, its a CIS-E (KE-Jetronics) injection car and Crank position sensors were used with LH 2.4 starting in 1989.

I have been told its more likely a hall sensor in the distributor.

There are no points in this car. If the Hall Sensor is "bad" will that cause no spark? This is what I know so far...

No spark at the plugs. The spark plug wire are new, replaced them a month ago as normal maintenance.
No spark after the coil. I pulled the center wire off the cap and cranked the car with the wire from the coil to the metal valve cover to see if there was a spark; no good.
I happened to have a known good new coil. Tried that; no good.
FYI: The car does have an after market remote starter to start the car remotely for the cold weather... can that fail in a "no spark" condition?

Thanks
Alan
