2007 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: No start, no spark

So, life interfered, and I haven't got back to fixing this thing until just now.

But, I have a new development.

I found a troubleshooting guide and a schematic that told me the pinout of he connector that plugs in to the ignition module.

The brown/white wire is from the crank sensor and the black/white is ground.

Ground tests fine - there is minor resistance to the block. The sensor wire, though, is open. So, I started unwrapping the harness and tracing it. Found a different broken wire - the orange one. It should be the control signal from ignition. Spliced it, but still no joy.

Pulled the starter and found that the crank sensor connector has holes too small to fit a probe into. Wires to the plug seem OK, so more unwrapping might be in order.

Meanwhile, the starter terminal fell off while I was unscrewing it. So, I'm in for a new starter.

Any ideas how I can get at the sensor contacts to test continuity? Or a common point of failure?
