P0300 Random Cylender Misfire Fault

Possible causes
- Faulty spark plug (s)
- Faulty ignition coil (s)
- Intake air leak
- Ignition coils harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coils poor electrical connection
- Clogged or faulty fuel injectors
- Injectors harness is open or shorted
- Injectors poor electrical connection
- Insufficient cylinders compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure


P2302- Ignition coil Failure.




So the 0300 and 2302 together give me a BIG feeling that your ignition coil is junk. Which would cause ALL the problems your having :-)

Also try to tap on your starter with a hammer. If the solenoid is shot it would give you starting issues but everything else would work.


Hope this helps

It would be nice to know what year car you have. The electrical system had a big change in 2006 and many diagnostics may differ depending on the year of the car.

What about your battery? Is it new? Did you try a jump start from a good source? Have you checked the cables to make sure there's no corrosion that would stop your battery from transferring 12V to where it's needed.

Your two codes are completely different in nature so one might be an old code. What do you mean by the "code trick" won't work? Your not getting anything when trying? Unless the computer completely died, you have enough power for the lights so you should get something from the "key trick".

Can't be coil. Starter don't care if you got no fire. I will turn it over anyway. Op said starter dosen't do anything not even a click. Not to say there isn't secondary issues.The code on the other hand might keep it from starting if the computer is designed to protect the car in case of oil pressure loss. In that case could be a bad sender. These are famous for going bad.
