1994 3.8 Taurus will not start

Help. I have a 1994 3.8 V6 Taurus that will not start. Engine turns over fine but will not fire. The Powertraing Control Module is making a loud buzzing noise. Has the PCM finally gone bad or is it something else?

When you say it's " Engine turns over fine but will not fire" are you referring to that there is not "Spark" to the plugs?

It is possible the PCM is bad, but I have never heard of a Pcm unit making a Buzzing sound...this is a first for me......Does this make the sound all the time, or just when you try to start the car??

I truly can't help you much with this....but it could be 1/2 a dozen different things.

There are a couple of guys here that are regulars, and they might be able to assist in this more...I'll forward this via Private Message and see what they advise.
