Hi,

This testing procedure is valid for most automotive coils. Using an ohmmeter, check the resistance between the side terminals of the coil. Do this with all of the wires to the coil disconnected. You should see 0.75 to 0.81 ohm of resistance. Then check the resistance between either side terminal and the center high tension terminal. The reading should be 10,000 to 11,000 ohms. Any significant deviation from these numbers would indicate that the coil is defective.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

My Suzuki esteem wont get fire to the plugs, we've replaced the coils and fuel pump and got a new batterie. still wont crank up


wow no year stated or engine option,,,,, a hard row to hoe.......
the pump dont create spark but all cars cut fuel if there is no spark.
for , fire safety. fix spark first. ignore all other symptoms.
Cranks but does not spark is the #1 symptom.
2nd is no spark, i guess that means at all spark plugs and not one?
what engine do you have,, Esteems dont come one just 1 engine.
so discover that engine, code, like G16 or J18?
The G16 has distributor, the J18 has COP coils x4
apples and oranges different.

So i will answer non specifically.
When you crank, does the tachometer needle move about 300 rpm?
with the scan tool do you see DTC errors as you crank for 5 seconds> release key and look? with key still on>?
P0340s 355s? etc>?
when cranking does the scan tool show RPM? moving up scale?
if car is 96 or newer year, the car has 2 devices that makes spark
one is CMP and the other is CKP. on the G16 engines, it
only needs CMP to make spark ( then ignitor, then coil, the distributor.) did you change you G16 timing belt at 60k miles>?
if not it may not generate spark due to the dizzy timing is way off now.
the J18 engine has no Dizzy (distributor) it has COP.
aka: DIS Distributorless ignition System
The car has CMP on the back side of the left cam.
It can go dead, but the ECU will tell you this fact of you use
as scan tool in the proper way,
the proper way is to crank for 5 seconds, and release key
and look for stored codes. do not turn key off,
until you scan for DTCs live, in memory or pending.
The J18 has 4 COPs check each for spark, not just one.
you can swap the bad ones around , and see if its bad.
post engine size and year, and you'd be amazed at better posts.

2001 20 vw beetle engine managmemt light keeps comming on told it was misfire on no4 all new plugs light reset run for three days light back on HELP


Certainly the person telling you this had a scan tool but did not investigate thoroughly why it was misfiring and only suggested a bad plug in cyl #4. A bad plug is usually the case maybe from a mixed matched set of plugs. Having a distributor-less system some people miss to check the ignition coil pack. Technically you can't correct a problem by resetting it's warning indicator which some people think they have a red FIX button. In this case the engine management needed 3 start up cycles to verify if problem was fixed after erasing the DTC stored in the system, hence the 3 days. The ignition coil pack could be going bad or the individual ignition wire is. Is this an AEG engine code?
