Thats normal..you will allways get a small spark when you connect a battery.

If you are getting a spark then is something connected, and not all connectors are disconnected.

That is very interesting.If you have spark to the distributor means that the coil and a CP sensor are OK.Than you have to check ignition leeds and a spar plugs.Did you put correct rotor and a distributor cup?Check compression of the cilynders

This works with the 5 prong module on an HEI ignition system with the coil that is mounted on the top of dist. The wires that come out of the back of the dist go to a spark controll module under the dash and they are junk. There is a conector on the wiring harness about 5" from the dist unplug that conector and run a jumper wire from the green wire to the black wire on the dist side and make sure you tape up all wires on dist side to keep them from grounding out. On the other side of the dist where your 12V goes in (batt conection) there are to wires piggybacked on top of each other disconect them from dis and plug only the pink 1 into dist at the batt conection. Where the wires on the back of dist run into firewall there should be a vacume line disconect and plug on engine compartment side. Thats how you do the bypass and the spark control module can be removed from under the dash if you want to but its not hurting anything to leave it there. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING MAKE SURE YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY. When all this is done you mite have to advance your timing 8-15 degrees. I had to advance mine 12 degrees. let me no if you have any problems. kyle yeo

With spark goes up and down on mazda rx8


your plugs are marked with a L and T this means leeding and trailing. the leeding plug goes in the bottom hole and the trailing plug goes in the top. It will run very poorly if you install them the other way around. Also when you replace the plugs look at the ends of the plugs if there is any rust or corrosion on them you will need to replace the wire because they are worn out and will cause a miss fire and posibly damage a coil

Someone put the wrong key (resistor value) in the ignition lock, you will have to disconect the battery for 3 min. Make sure you have the right key. Very important! Make sure the climate control is off before disconecting/conecting the battery.
