Electrical 94 Cobra Wont Start After Disconnecting Spark Plug Wire

  1. My 94 cobra wont start after disconnecting spark plug wire while the engine was running. Any ideas of what could be the problem?
     
  2. Do you have spark? It shouldn't make a difference that you pulled the plug wire off, as far as the ignition system goes. It essentially does that as the rotor turns under the distributor cap anyway.
     
  3. I replaced the ignition module and it still wont start and I don't want to pull the wire again while cranking it so I don't damage the new ignition module.
     
  4. Disconnecting a plug wire won't hurt the ignition module and doesn't determine whether the engine will start or not. Something else has happened. We are all assuming the wire you disconnected isn't the coil to distributor wire. That will definitely prevent the engine from starting. How are you sure you are getting a spark if you don't pull a wire?
