No spark at the plug on apache RLX 250 any advice please many thanks

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

I have a 6x6 2006 Ranger. It quit running. Electrical problem. When I turn on Key it lights up for 2-3 seconds then goes blank. Any help . Battery is 100%

What light's up for 2-3 seconds then goes blank ? Instrument cluster ? 6X6 you mean a 4 wheel drive . This problem if instrument cluster , the instrument cluster is bad or SMJ - smart junction box First off a scan tool that will communicate with all the modules on the vehicle needs to be hooked up ! Instrument cluster has microprocessor inside an is on the vehicle communication data bus. If the instrument cluster is bad , needs replacing an programming . Dealer only .
NOTE: If installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the instrument cluster configuration information to the diagnostic tool. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .
Principles of Operation
Some modules must be programmed as part of the repair procedure. If this procedure is not followed, the module does not function correctly and may set a number of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), including B2477 or P1639, which indicate that necessary data has not been programmed into the module.
Modules that need programming should not be exchanged between vehicles. In most cases the parameter values or settings are unique to that vehicle, and if not set correctly, cause concerns or faults.
The diagnostic tool automatically attempts to retrieve the module configuration information from all modules and from a backup location in the powertrain control module (PCM) when vehicle ID is carried out. If the module and the PCM do not contain correct information, the diagnostic tool either requests As-Built data or displays a list of items that are needed to manually configure. The diagnostic tool programs the module based on the data entered.
Your best bet is take your vehicle to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop .
Do you know what C.A.N is ? controller area network .
