coil & starter solonoid ????? 87 yj 4.2
I have some questions regarding the wires coming off my ignition coil.... ONe side is green white and ,until I cut it out because I thought it was a bad piece of wire, went to yellow powered 12v with the ignition. This piece of wire I cut out turned out to be a resistance wire of which noone has and I cant seem to be able to duplicate.... I tried some easy-frying resistors. My question.... the yellow wire pigtails off to a female bullet connector and terminates. According to this electrical diagram, there is supposed to be a "filter capacitor". What is this and what is it for? And are there any repercussions to not using it, as I apparently haven't been for a number of years.
Another questions... I drove for about 70 miles with my coil powered up to 12 volts. What is the voltage supposed to be to my coil? The dealer didnt know what a ballast wire was and couldnt locate it on their microfiche. Any way to make a ballast wire? And finally, I know I've dealt a barrage of confusing and unorganized questions but, is there supposed to be a "resistance wire/ballast wire" by my alternator somewhere?
Gurus unite and inform yet another village idiot..... thanks in advance with more to come, I'm sure.
