I’m back, winter hasn’t loosened its grip on us yet but I have been reading old posts and trying to learn as much as possible before asking for assistance.
What I have done so far and what I know.
I have 2 new batteries engine cranks strong
I have CEL at key on and off while cranking
I sprayed starting fluid into intake and nothing (possibly no spark)
I pulled the spout pin and still no start with starter fluid
I pulled ignition module plug and did the Subford LED test in pin 1 and 6 of the ICM plug and no LED light came on.
I can’t find the OBD 1 plug anywhere yet.
Any advice as to what to try next to solve the spark problem?
I have a 93 Bounder Ford F53 with 460 fuel injected engine.

Ok I have spark going into the distributor and coming out of the distributor cap to the plug wires. I canít test at the spark plug as the motorhome has sunk and I canít get underneath the unit.
I have removed the 2,air box hoses from the intake and sprayed starter fluid straight in and no start.
I guess itís possible that the spark is weak.
I do hear the click when I turn the key on, I assume that is the fuel pump
I finally found the fuel pump relay and the self test connector. The self test connector has a white look substance at the contacts. It was tucked inside a rubber boot so maybe some corrosion.
Is there a spray I can use to clean contacts on self test plugs and relays?

In the past I've used CRC contact cleaner. They have more than one kind so be careful about which one you select.

As for the white looking stuff you see... are you sure that isn't dielectric grease? If your able to spead it easily and it has a grease like texture versus being powdery or crumbly I guess I'd leave it.

deOxit has a number of excellent products for cleaning electrical connections. Many auto parts houses carry them.

White powdery substance is corrosion. Spray clean with electrical contact cleaner. No dielectric grease afterwards. Use Deoxit product.

What did you do to resolve the no spark issue?
