why would you burn the coil out? i thought the coil not get power as soon an the key is turned on? You can burn out points. but the coil? You know how a coil works right? they get constant power and ground and are triggered by the cdi box. i looked up to see if my working premise was right... And it was.. Here man, educate yourself. https://www.elprocus.com/capacitor-discharge-ignition-cdi-system-working/THAT is not a valid testing technique.
Odds are high that you will burn out the coil.
yes. but the coil should be marked for what is what. there is a positive and a trigger wire. all 2 wire coils ground through the mount bolts. but i would do your own research also before you trust some random person and risk burning something out. oh. test your crank position/ hall-affect sensor and the wire connecting it to the computer.I did switch the wires on the coil to make sure I didn't have them reversed and I still got no spark. I removed the paint from the frame where the coil bolts to just to make sure the coil is grounded. I did test the trigger wire which is orange for continuity. The wire that goes from the coil straight to the ECU and the multimeter beeped.
So if I were to jump the coil from the battery I'm assuming it would be the wire that doesn't go to the ECU. Also use the positive terminal I'm assuming. I'll give it a shot and let you know. I did order another coil just in case. If none of this works I will completely remove all wire covering and try to find whatever I am looking for.
the trigger is basically a switch. did you read the site? it acts like the points or distributer. please know what your talking about before you make a bigger fool out of yourself. Do you know more about mechanics than me? yeah, probably. but i read up on this. coil has 2 sides, low and high voltage. the low voltage has to have constant voltage so it can charge. the high voltage side acts like a capacitor. charging a high voltage. the trigger connects the high side to the plug wire for an instant so it can dump its power to ground.No they don't.
If the power and ground are "constant", what exactly do you think is the "trigger" ??
Maybe it's not me who doesn't understand.
One wire on the coil has 12 volts and the other wire shows minimal voltage like 120 milivolts. The wire with lower voltage when I crank the engine the voltage increases to 8 volts but I do not see a back and fourth or should I say a on and off of voltage like a trigger while cranking. I'm starting to think it is the ECU but that would suck to buy a new one and still be no spark.
by the way the coil I just bought didn't do anything for the spark.
I put a link to the service manual if anyone wanted to look at the wiring. yeah it might be bad... this might helphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYzrByJUoGY
