So I assume you never disconnected the bat. when changing the coil that is not good ....I would say buy another coil pack and start over and make sure to disconnect the bat.......Check all wires going to the coil for breaks or worn or burnt marks in wires before hooking up new coil

Isuzu 2ltr bakkie nmbr 2 and 3 no spark?


post 3, adds, no spark , 2/3 (and still no year, no country stated)
bad coil pack?
wired wrong, this pack.
no photo of the engine, nor real name of it, Petrol.
btw, we dont have "BAKKIE" here. not a single one.
nor KB trucks, either.
what spark system this car has, im clueless.
4 coils or 1 pack.? if one pack , replace all spark wires
if one pack system , if either 2/3 wire opens, both cylinders go dead. try new spark wires. high voltage,

or you measured spark wrong, on 1 pack car.
it takes 2 spark plugs do do that. 2 good plugs and 2 good wires,
#2 and #3, due to the fact they are wired, in SERIES.
see its called wasted spark system, with 1 coil pack and no distributor..
the testing is unique. on this, setup.
try new spark plugs, gapped correctly
and 4 new HV wires,
I bet its go. if not the coil pack is toasted.

2.2 MIS FIREON NUMBER 3 2008 MALIBU


HI if a compression test on cyl 3 is fine ,the next step check coil pack if independent coil swop with a functioning cyl (eg 2 ) ,If this repairs the problem coil should be changed.Do check wires connecting to coil for continuity on power and ground supply.In some rare cases the above answers are over powered by a faulty ignition module .

My suzuki vitara 20v6 number one plug is not


its a 2.0L V6 called the h20 engine
in some countries, this engine uses a coil pack with 1 coil per
2 cylinders, this magic is called Wasted spark.
some have 3 coil packs for 6 cylinders
others have 1 huge pack with 3 coils inside.
what you have , im totally clueless, (no country stated, dig?)

but no matter, the pack is bad, or the wire that is FINE, is not FINE
no human on earth can test a HV wire, no body.! ( 1 out of 4 sure)
that is fact, (sure if opened) but what about the other modal failiures.
1: insulation breakdown.
2: resistance wrong, (say too high)
3: intermittent.
4: dead open, anyone can test this, its a no brainer. if ever.

this fact is why the 60k mile tune up, will fix it. new wires.
new HV wire set, I run NGK MAG wires, they last 2x longer.
easy.

no only that. with wasted spark , the other plug in the loop can cause your dead plug to be dead. and its wires too.
that is because it is a LOOP

if both plugs are new and both wires are new
then the coil is bad.
coil packs are usually way more expensive that $2.49 spark plugs
or $20 wires.

2006 Suzuki forenza no fire from coil pack


what country? this is the WWW, post country for better answers.......!
Only a scope can see the fast 5mS signals to the coil.
so its either the coil pack or the ECU blown. (wires are always suspect)
you never said , all 4 are dead, or 1 or 2, and how many packs.
some non usa cars have wasted (2pak) spark , not 4 COPS.
state what cylinders have spark and which don't.
there are only 2 ways to fix cars.
1: guess and swap parts
2: use tools. my guess is you dont have them.
some coil packs are active (ignitor inside) others just a coil.
you can test the restance of the coils, with a DMM , ohm meter.
if active you cant.
the fsm covers this on all cars.
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/category/3-suzuki-service-manuals.aspx
the 2006 Forenza as delivered to USA has.....
has a large single, dual wasted spark coil pack. (brick)
it does in fact have , internal ignitor drivers. inside. so can not be tested
with and ohm meter on the primary side. but can be on the secondary
you do know how to test wasted spark , right, All spark plugs must be
attached and grounded for the coil to work,
1and 4 are shared.
2 and 3 are shared.
so to test , you must keep the spark plugs (both or all 4 is best)
attached and the shells of spark plugs grounded.
there is a fuse that powers the coil pack. (usa)
the fuel pump relay sends power to the coil pack.
so of that is dead,so will be the pack. (im reading FSM as it type)
get an FSM.
pin 2 on coil pack is power. 12v.
pin 1,is spark 1&4 drive (fast ECU pulse)
pin 3 is 2&3 coil drive. (scope can see it)

recap, are you using the correct wasted spark testing method.
and are all 4 spark plugs dead.?

I do not have spark in number 3 and 4 cylinder at the coil pack of my 1997 VW Jetta GLX, what is the problem


Coil packs are a common failure in these vehicles. Check the coil pack for cracks and if it is cracked it will need to be replaced.

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion. It started running


You can by a new Coil pack from Auto Zone for less then the dealer's cost and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions for you to replace the coil pack free of charge and will take about 1 hour if your good with common tools. Auto Zone also can scan your car for DTC codes Free of charge to ensure that it's the coil pack. The other common problem that will also seam like a bad coil pack is a bad ignition module which is what I  am leaning towards since it's three of the cylinders you mentioned, most of the time it's just one of the two coils that will go bad which would only make two of the cylinders go dead. Check the wires to the electronic module first and then the switch the coils and see if the same two cylinders are still dead, if the same cylinders are still dead. Good chance that it's going to be the module and if the other two cylinders go dead and the dead ones come alive then it's going to be the coil pack. Good luck and here is a you-tube link to the ignition module and coil pack replacement procedure. keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XgHM1i5jK8
