Ok bro we need more info... are you getting power to the coils? If you are replace the coils. If not you need to figure out where the power was lost at.

Why relay coil do not energises?

Firstly test your relay coil to see if its okay. Then trace back and see where your getting your 12v for the coil. Test the contacts to make sure you dont have a bad contact....bad contacts are common

What happened if i had an ignition coil problem where only one coil was functioning while the other was nonfunctional? The nonfunctional coil was replaced but still doesn't work.

I would look at the wiring, I have had many issues with Hyundai wiring. Usually the heat gets to the insulation and it becomes brittle and cracks, then falls off and creates a short in the wiring.

Replaced coil packs yesterday drove car this morning coil packs are already cracked again. what is causing this

Cracked? Like split open!? There may be fine casting marks in the coil/s that may resemble cracks and this is normal. As long as the coils are functional and spark is not grounding out from them, you should be ok

Hi i have a boost control on my 99 forrester gt an running 10.5 pound boost but car is running ruff every time i put my foot down iv change plugs leads an still having problem what could it be

This engine had a problem with the ignition coil which resulted in the problem you describe, i.e., missing and rough running under load. I\'ve attached and ad for a replacement coil that also suggests that you clean and re-secure the coil ground and check or replace the Crank Position Sensor. Hope this helps.

What does the blower resister do

Blower motor resister allows the blower motor to function at lower speeds the resistor reduces airflow through the vents via wire coils. Resistor has coils which with thinner coils respond to higher air settings, Thicker coils respond to lower air settings.

What are the coil packs, is it the plugs?

No, entirely different, although both coils and spark plugs have been around since the beginning of time....well, modern time, or as we might say in montana, horseless carriage time, lol.
A spark plug is a spark plug. Todays are better engineered and designed than the very first working spark plugs, but they look and work just alike. A coil pack (think of a rack with 2, 3 or 4 individual coils attached) is a modern day version of the same coil that has been a fixture on automobiles since the beginning of ( mass production). Same function, same design-only packaged different to accomodate todays distributorless ignition systems, where electronics have taken over many previous mechanical operations, like the distributor, for one. Manufacturers just built bigger and more complex systems around the coil and the spark plugs, or that what makes the internal combustion engine work, you know.
The function of the coil or of the coil pack is to dramatically increase the voltage to the spark plug. Think of it, only 12 volts from the car's 12 volt system enters the coil, but exiting the coil and going to the spark plug is a voltage measured in the thousands, 40 to 60 thousand volts in modern systems, and before electronic ignition when cars used mechanical "points" to make and break electrical contact so the coil would do it's job, the coil output was something around 10,000 volts, still a shocking upgrade as I recall.
Now why is this necessary, you ask? Because the function of the spark plug is to simply provide a path for an electrical current from the coil to jump to ground by jumping a gap at the end of the plug with a spark. The bigger the voltage push, the bigger the spark.
Well, there you go, diego, hope you understand it a little better. I'm no expert, still don't know a lot about electrical theory, and car systems, but you have to learn a little when you can't afford to pay somebody else to fix it.

What is the spark plug setting for izuzu axiom 3.5 v6 my car is hard starting at 152000 miles, i replaced the timing belt flushed the injectors replaced fuel filter

Hi. You will need to Adjust each spark plug gap to 0.031-0.035 in. (0.8-0.9mm). With that said; i would check the status of all the ignition coils that are on top of each plug. Your engine is equipped with a COP coil design. Each plug will have its own individual coil on top. Each coil can be tested for proper resistance levels. You may have one or several bad coils that are malfunctioning. If these coils have not been changed, I would recommend to test each one to be sure that they are functioning at a high level.

Here is a simple testing procedure to verify that your coils are functioning as designed. A weak coil will cause a very hard start situation. Follow carefully:

1.First you will need to check the ignition coil assembly for insulation. Check terminals for corrosion or damage, and replace as necessary.

2. Next; Gather you ohmmeter or multimeter and measure the resistance of ignition coil assemblies and compare with the following specifications:

a. Terminal 1 to 2: Without 0 ohms or infinity maximum ohms.

b. Terminal 1 to 3: Without 0 ohms or infinity maximum ohms.

c. Terminal 2 to 3: Without 0 ohms or infinity maximum ohms.

3. Now; If the measured values exceed the specifications listed above, the ignition coil must be replaced.

Still running rough after plugs and wires.

if the other coils are functioning, then voltage to the coil pack is ok. removing the spark plug wire from the suspected bad coil with no change in engine performance is a reliable procedure to check for a bad coil.
