Question about Opel Kadett
The car is a 1996 model 200is with the 2litre 8valve engine and bosch motronic ecu. The car doesn't want to start. I check for spark, but there isn't any. I then checked for voltage on the coil itself (single coil, not coil pack) and I didn't find any voltage on the coil's primary curcuit. I don't have a wiring diagram for the car, which makes it diffecult for me to try and trace the ignition curcuit.
Do you have coil trigger on either wire to the coil? if so then apply 12 volts to the other wire to see if car will start.

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.
