Mazda rustler pickup not starting

Hi, I have a Mazda rustler pickup truck. The car will not start, If i connect a lead from the one side of the coil to the battery it starts, there are no blown fuses. one side of the coil gets 12v when i turn the key on... What could be the cause for no power on the other coil terminal?

Hi Gerrie1974-

WildBill49 here......Not knowing the specific year and version of your Mazda, I cannot give you a specific part at fault, but I can help you. I am assuming we're talking about an electronic distributor single coil ignition system

If the spark is weak directly out of the coil (with a known good coil hooked up with correect polarity), then the problem is in the spark trigger module... There is a variety of designs, but the basic components remain the same. This is the part of the ignition system that replaces the breaker points. It consists of two parts - a magnetic spark trigger sensor, and a spark signal amplifier/controller. these are sometimes combined into one ignition module.

Replace this module, and spark from the coil should be strong! If it is still weak, reverse the two wires to the coil.

Weak spark at the plug wire with the above good indicates distributor cap/rotor replacement time...

Gerrie, I hope this is what you are looking for, best of luck, and if you feel my advice worthy, please rate it!!!

Thanx-

SOURCE: i just bought a new coil for my 65 Mustang and we

couple of things
does the mustang have a ballest resisor fitted between the ign switch and the coil? in which case it should be a 9v coil or remove the ballest resistor to run a direct 12v feed from the ign switch, or just to test run a 12v feed direct from battery to coil.
the feed to the dissy is switched by the points opening unless you have electronic ignition,
but in both cases the capacitor/condenser may have broken down causing a consent feed hence given permenant live through the coil,
to test if you have points rotate engine so points are closed, put meter on coil and test if volts change when you open the points, or a spark out of ht to dissy lead
if electronic ign you will have to rotate engine or dissy to activate spark ,

Hi i have a mazda rustler 160i and something is draining the battery how can i find the problem and fix it


If you are mechanically inclined, start by having a multimeter connected to your battery. Then, remove fuses one at a time while checking if the draw goes away. This will isolate the circuit and then you begin checking components within that circuit.

An ignition coil is more than likely your problem. When the car is not running pull one spark plug wire and a plug and insert plug into the wire hold plug end on ground area. Have someone crank engine and check for spark. If no spark, replace ignition coil.

No spark for my 97 mazda lx 626 2.0 automatic. do have pwr at both sides of coil and power to distributor but no pulse and no power at coil lead or at crank sensor connector. what is wrong?


Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

Dodge pickup 97 with 360ci will not start when you stop


check the resistance on the coil. to check the primary resistance on coil,remove plug from coil using an ohm meter connect one lead to the positive terminal and the other to the negetive terminal to find the primary resistance. primary resistance should be 0.95-- 1.20 ohms. then to find the secondary resistance connect one of the leads to the primary terminal and the other to the large center terminal. secondary resistance should be 11,300--13,300 ohms.
