1983 BMW 533i Base 6 Cyl 3.2L

Engine

The vehicle is not getting spark.

I have power on the positive sideof coil. I do have ground on the negative side of coil with the key off but when i go to start the vehicle i loose my ground. I am under the understanding that the ecm completes the circuit and grounds the coil at time of fire. but it does nothing

Test the ignition coil, it could be defective. Check also spark plug condition.
