PaddyWagon is an unknown quantity at this point
Any help appreciated...

my 1990 E34 520 has sat down and refuses to get up again!
There is no ignition spark. So far i have changed the ignition leads, checked out the (previously replaced) coil, and the pulse sensor. The resistance across terminal 1 and 2 of the crankshaft (position? ) sensor reads 497ohms which is on the edge of ok according to Bentley. Where should I go from here?

Thanks for the reply billB, but the link didnt help as mine is an older engine type (M40). I since swopped the Motronic 'brain' with a known good one , but no change. I guess its time to recycle the bugger.
