Car has sat for 2 years. Coil A will not spark regardless of new battery, coil, wires, and plugs. Have checked grounds and replaced terminals. Throws a P0351 code. I'm lost any help would be awesome. Have owned the car for years and only has 87,000 on it. Mods are kinda unknown but will tell what I see if it seams to be an issue.
Thanks.

Lack of interest in plating it with 2008 and 2012 SRT jeeps around. my kids were young and winter's are long here. But summer is here and kids have grown.

ok so just to clarify, your engine turns over, but isn't sparking... correct?

have you tested it with a spark tester or by visually seeing no spark from a plug with the engine turning over?

Engine starts but only runs on center cylinders. Outer cylinders have no spark. Have tested wires back to the ECU with a meter and has a connection with no resistance. Starting to think it is the ECU itself but want to be as sure as possible before spending money on replacement.

while i have read about people having ecu failures, it isnt common and i can't see any reason it would happen from the car sitting. It would seem more likely to me, with the car having sat so long, that a wire could be damaged somewhere due to a rodent.

That is what I'm hoping but so far no luck. I have personally done nothing to this car other than solid mounts but the next thing will be relocating the battery to the trunk. It never bothered me until I have had to start chasing wires. I appreciate the response and will update this post when I get to the bottom of it.
