No spark won't start

Post by dulux72 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 8:00 pm


I wonder if anyone can point me in the next direction to isolate the issue I'm currently having

2002 9N polo 1.2 with a AZQ engine

Drove perfectly
Parked up and left for about a week and now won't start
Turns over but not even a cough
Fuel OK
Compression OK
No Spark
I've replaced the all the coils with known good ones but still no spark

Car has been scanned with a fully licensed VCDS and no faults are logged

Anyone with any idea where to go next ?
Thanks in advance

Camshaft Position Sensor could give a no spark condition, though I would expect a DTC.

I had a similar issue which flummoxed the AA guy, my trusted mechanic and his trusted auto electrician.

In the end, I had to have the ECU repaired, and all in all it came to £600ish.
