Question about 1995 Suzuki Sidekick
Posted by Anonymous on
At all 4 spark wire tips?, but what about the coil does it have spark ( there are 5 places to check for spark,not 4)
does the cam spin?, & run the belt over 60k miles.?
open oil cap filler, see cam, see it spin ,cranked?
Ill assume the cam spins and the COIL really is dead. below.....?
if the cam belt slips the coil makes spark perfectly but is now timed ALL WRONG.
This is a G16 engine, and the ECU makes the spark.
here are the steps.
1: fuses good, "FI" and IGcoil. both !!!
2: key on, CEL lamp must glow or ECU is dead, (see #1)
3: Insert diagnostic jumper and crank engine for 5 full seconds
bingo it tells you why there is no spark about 90% of time.
code 41 or 42 , that means the ECU knows why, it fails.
DTC flash codes (CEL lamp falshes)
paper clip test is here, 100% documented .
CMP dead, due to cam belt snapped?
there is no CKP sensor until 1996 (usa EPA laws)
The ECU sees the CMP pulses and generates spark.
via the IGNITOR.
all 27 ways to not start.
but if the Ignition coil high voltage tower is dead, you need to use make sure cam spins and then the DLC jumper clip test.
