2002 ford taurus sel car was running fine; then all of a sudden would not start; engine is cranking but will not turn over; we have changed the ignition coil, spark plugs and wires; tested the battery starter and alternator--they are ok. hooked up to a scanner got code p0353 ignition coil; after changing it twice, still nothing is receiving any spark during tests. I'm stumped any suggestions?????

Open or short in Ignition START/RUN circuit
Open coil driver circuit in harness
Coil driver circuit shorted to ground
Damaged coil
Damaged PCM
Coil driver circuit shorted to PWR

I'd also check the wiring & make sure it's in tact and not burned or cracked.
and possibly the crank sensor.. it'll give a no spark as well.

checked all circuits; testing the ckp sensor now; all the wiring looks good; we are getting voltage on 1 pin out of the 4 on the wiring harness too the ignition coil...so hopefully it's the ckp

urrrr; ok getting the right volts on the ckp; but now testing the cpm, first test volts came up fine, now tested again its getting nothing; will it be bad if the volts were fine the first time; will they go in and out like that?
