Question about Toyota Celica

1 Answer

How do you test the igniter module for a 1993 Toyota Celica GT. Checked ignition coil and pickup coil resistance and checked ok according to Haynes manual. I replaced the cap because it had a hole burned in it. Replaced rotor also. Used a spark tester attached to engine and not getting a spark jumping across the gap. Haynes manual does not tell you how to test the igniter. Does anyone know how to test the igniter in or out of the car?

Hi..
this solution will be very different to u bcoz its a video format on how to test the ignition...
http://www.videojug.com/webvideo/how-to-test-the-ignition-on-a-car

If u feel that video solution doesnt give u enough ideas i will give u the solution in text format

Working around a running engine can be dangerous. Be sure to keep yourself (including hair and clothing) away from any moving engine parts.
Testing a coil on the car is pretty easy. No special tools are required. Just remember to be careful, the amount of electricity generated by your ignition system can be dangerous
If your coil is already off the car, or if you would like a more specific data-driven test, you can bench test your coil. To set up the test, remove one spark plug wire from its plug, then remove the spark plug using a spark plug socket. Next put the spark plug back into the spark plug wire. Be careful not to let anything drop into the empty spark plug hole -- very bad.

Holding the plug wire with insulated pliers, find a spot on the engine that is a good and easily accessible grounding point. Pretty much any exposed metal, including the engine itself, will do.

Holding the spark plug wire with your pliers, touch the threaded portion of the spark plug to the grounding point. Have somebody crank the engine with the key, and look for a bright blue spark to jump across the spark plug gap. If you see a nice, bright spark (clearly visible in daylight) your coil is doing its job.

Or else if u feel unsafe to do it by ur own remove the ignntion coil from the engine and take it to Auto Zone. They can test it for Free...

thank u

Tested power to coil - result-power to coil, checked timing belt - result O.K., checked fuel pressure - result - got that. Out of ideas. No spark to plugs, car turns over but will not ignite.


I would be looking at the ignition module in the distributor. Also check the coil pack primary and secondary resistance to see if the coil itself is good. I don't know what your resistance values should be. I work on all makes and models. I look them up as I go. If you have a book it will tell you. An autoparts store can tell you also.

My 1986 toyota 2wd pick-up truck has no spark at the coil, the guys at auto - zone tested the coil for resistance and it check ok. the rotor turns when I crank the engine, what else should I check.-


Hello i can assist you. Hello your ignition module will cause a no spark you find your module under your distributor cap.You will see two wires go into your distributor shaft these will connect to your pick up distributor module.To remove and replace this part you will need to unscrew the distributor cap lift off and remove retaining screws on the module once you have removed this replace it with your new module reinstall your distributor cap and start.

93 toyota celica gt. engine turns over but wont spark.plugs new wires and cap and rotor good, put ohms meter on coil and secondary output and is in specified range but have no power to coil.changed ignitor...


My experience with Bosch ignition system (found on european cars) is the spark control is sent by the ignition module. The ignition module has to receive an input usually from a crankshaft sensor. This is usually near the crankshaft pulley on many cars. I am currently working on a 04 Toyota RAV4 and it has exactly that. If your sensor wiring gets loose or a bad wire then the computer won't signal for spark. This may not be your problem but it sounds like it probably is.
(By the way on my Alfa Romeo it is a sensor around the bell housing that senses the teeth on the flywheel) Good luck!

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.


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.

No start, blown ignition fuse 30 amp.


If it is the AM2 (30A) fuse that is blowing, check the ignition condenser, capacitor, within the ignition assembly. I just removed it and assembled the ignition back together. I am in the process of ordering a new one from Rock Auto for a total of $2.57. It seems to be a common issue. The condenser is actually a capacitor and the issue is that they internally short.

1984 toyota pickup 22r motor. No fire to distributor, I have power to coil but no power from coil to coil wire to distributor. coil, distributor modgual, altunator, all checked good. any ideas wall help.


At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road.
Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.

Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter.
I hope this helped.

1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO- TRUCK WONT


OK...I have a 93 outside...one diagram I have shows an ignition module next to coil...but there is none on mine, (4.0 engine)
Two items to check are crank sensor and cam sensor inside distributor. Test procedure can be found in just about any manual including haynes.
You will need a decent volt/ohm meter to do testing. You can also check codes by turning ignition switch on/off three times, leaving it on the third time. Check engine will flash code #'s (ex: one flash, pause two flashes= the number twelve.then followed by a longer pause then another set of flashes etc.)
