electrical problems still.....

this weekend i decided i would fix my suzuki.... so with a spare distributor in hand, i went to work

installed new disti - still no spark
after testing this and that i see that there is no signal coming from the coil, so i go out and get a new coil... still no signal coming from it
so i looked all day yesterday to find the problem, but im still empty handed

the only thing i can trace this problem back to is something called a [b]Filter[\b] on the electrical diagram... it has a brown/white and a brown wire running into it, and a black wire coming out that goes to a ground... i found this thing on the zook (right in the middle on the top of the firewall, attached to a suzuki electrical connector), but that really doesnt do me any good... it doesnt look burned out, but then neither did my computer when it got cooked a couple months ago....

does anyone know what the heck this filter does?

any other clues as to why my zook has no spark?

Re: electrical problems still.....

My zook had the same problem, there was a kill switch that was mounted under the dash. I think you're supposed to read +12v on one of the leads to the coil.... I think the zooks use an electronic ignition so it is very costly to replace those components..

Re: electrical problems fixed!!!

oh wow, i dont think i should even tell ya'll this one...


my zook was never actually broken

there is a kill switch in my glove box that i inadverntantly pushed when i went to get my camera to take a picture of the rollover in front of us...

that pretty much explains why it wouldnt start

Re: electrical problems fixed!!!

That's great! I often seek the complicated sollutions for simple malfunctions. I will probably continue doing this till I get it right.....
My motor was shaking like a leaf at speed after I had replaced the timing belt/water pump. It turned out to be 2 rubber vaccume plugs that had deteriorated causing a major leak. I thought I was going to have to tear into the motor again....
I love the easy (and cheap) fixes......

Re: electrical problems fixed!!!

I had a vacuum hose from underneath the carb lid deteriorate and fall off. My Sami ran like crap and left me stumped for days. I was glad it was a cheap fix but I felt STUPID once I realized what it was. It seems that when something goes wrong, I always think it's the worst possible scenario...

Re: electrical problems still.....

Hey Steve,
Glad to hear you've got this figured out. And it was nice you let everyone know what happened, I barely know you but now I've got something I can remind you of forever!

Re: electrical problems still.....

howdy,
tex have you tested the plug that leads to the pick-up/stator in the distributor. just unplug the only two wire that go to the distributor at the wire plug. test the plug that has the leads coming to the distributor, not the wires that are on the distributor. on one of those wires you sould get voltage from 10.2 to 12.8, which will tell you if you are get any signal at all. the filter thing is for the radio, it filters out the low impulse that the coil produses when jumping the 12 volts up to a higher voltage. i will try to help you as much as i can, so just reply back to me if you need more help, or one more hand in the soup pot.

Thanks fer your time,

Jimmie & MONZUKI
