My 1996 Dodge Dakota was running fine when one day I could not get it to start. I changed ignition coil, plugs and wires and switched the ignition relay with same relays in fuse box. It turns over fine, but no spark. Do you have other things to check regarding getting a spark out of the new coil?

    Well it could be a number of things but a common fault would be your camshaft positioning sensor. If the PCM does not see a signal from the CPS it will not ground the ASD relay and you won't get any spark from the coil. d

    The CPS is in the distributor, looks like a flat plate.

    This may help you to test it:
