How to test the coil of a honda luxline 1996
this is covered in the FSM. factory service manual.
there are 2 tests, ohm meter, and hot wiring.
no exact numbers as USA dont have luxlines.... nor that 1.5L , nor your smogless controls. on
1: check primary, it will be like (taught i school works on all gas cars)
the primary, is near 0.5 ohms. (varies by if IGN is low,med, or HEI energy levels, im clueless to luxlines.)
our 96 civic (USA) is 1/2 ohm primary.
and secondary is 22k to 33,000 ohms....
2: there is a live test. using a 12vdc battery, ill skip that is you will get shocked.. but is covered in school, the trick is to avoid infinite dwell.
if this DIZZY is a stand alone dizzy( how many pins are on the primary wiring connector?)
if stand alone it has what is called a VR pickup and an ignitor inside
you set the VR gap to spec, and the pick up amp, works, and fires
the egnitor, the ignitor is just a large transistor. it turns on, charges
the coil for "dwell spec" and the turns off, this turning off creates.
near 20,000 volts in the coils secondary.
if this is a ECU controlled spark system that is a whole other matter
if engine has a CMP and CKP sensor it is THAT system
and the ECU will tell you when they are bad, (blinking CEL lamp)
