Re: Unusual spark from a 16v coil.......any ideas?
I don't have a wiring diagram for your vehicle, but --
If you have 2 small terminals on your starter
solenoid, one's an ignition resistor bypass.
If you've put both small wires on the "S" or
Start terminal you'd make the condition you
During cranking the ignition is grounded through
the solenoid, then when you "let go" the coil

unless you are really lucky. It may occasionally
start, but unreliable.
Check the voltage at the coil during cranking,
you'll see it drags way down.
Please let us know what you find out on this
