    I've tracked the problem down to a couple of things, spark control computer
    (SCC) or something in the distributor. The MIL flashes a 1 - 1 code for "No
    ignition reference signal" and is further described as "No distributor
    reference signal detected during engine cranking". There is no 12V at the
    coil during cranking and of course no spark. My evil Haynes manual
    describes a test for ruling out the SCC but maybe the Hall Effect switch
    unit in the distributor is the culprit. Seems as though these things just
    up and quit one day without any warning. Car has 114K miles on it. Any

    Found it !! Timing belt issue. Haven't pulled the covers yet, but the
    distributor isn't turning when the engine is cranked.
