If there is no power at the coil, then I'd suspect the automatic shutdown (ASD) relay is faulty. The ASD relay controls power on the ignition, injection and charging systems.

power is getting to the ASD relay, it's a 5.2 mpi auto transmission with overdrive. getting 9.5 mv at the green/orange wire throughout the asd circuit with the ignition switch in the on position.asd and fuel pump relays kicks on, intermitten crank and cam sensors pick up. getting 9.5 mv at ignition feed wire as well as the asd bpositive terminals at coil. yet no spark at the high tension lead wire.

I have the 92 dakota 5.2 automatic and im having the same problem. Just replaced the distributor, cap and rotor, and pickup. As well as a coil. We checked the fuses and everything was fine. I'm beginning to think it might be the computer..
