Only one coil will fire during cranking.The other coil will only fire when running.This system uses spark on the intake and a spark on the exhaust. Is the vehicle able to start?The vehicle while cranking starts on the exhaust side plugs after it's running will fire the intake plugs.
Dual Plug Inhibit System Notes PURPOSE
Dual Plug Inhibit (DPI) allows the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to switch the ignition system from single to dual plug operation.

OPERATION
During cranking the vehicle is in single plug mode (only the plugs on the right side of the engine are firing). The PCM sends a command to the Distributorless Ignition System (DIS) module to switch to the dual plug mode (both plugs in each cylinder are firing) when the engine is started.

SOURCE: truck wont start. battery test good.truck cranks

drags down and then clicks? then is a dirty batterie post if that is not it, then there is a fuel problem to check, starting fluid spray through the intake air, make sure not to spray directly onto the map sensor.

Fiat Palio 1.2 firing order


didnt change them 1 by one, you bad boy.

id get the real engine name and google that or buy the FSM book.
at FIAT.

1.2 F.I.R.E engine.
comes in 2 favors
  • 8v SMPI VVT (2007 - current)
  • 16v SMPI (1998 - 2009)
most non boxer engines, are 1,3,4,2 (but this is pcm job not you )
google shows
IT'S WASTED SPARK SYSTEM !
google hit #1
It's cast into the cylinder head. Look across from the passenger side of the car- you'll see 2314 just above the coils.

sounds like this engine is with a COIL pack, You never said.
and with a twin pack , all 4 bangers are wasted spark.
so 2nd 3 fire on one coil (in series) and 1and 4 fire in tandom.
but the PCM sets order. not you,
it only needs to have to pack wired right.
and is clearly marked on most better made coil packs
did you look first.?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
one more google poster , no FSM. shows
coil towards the front of the car is cylinder 2 and 3
coil towards the back of the car cylinder 1 and 4
as shown below

make sure you have the plugs to the coils the right way round thou i

4 ----[o]4
1 ----------------[o]1
2 ------------[o]2
3 --------[o]3

-----------------------------------------------------------------
me.....
when the PCM fires coil 1/4 , it better be wired to 1 and4 or
it will not run. (ir shakes like a wet dog)
simple as can be.

yes, the front cylinder is #1
now where is front. you say?, that be, on the crank pulley end.
not the clutch.side.

if still confused a drawing is easy to make.
1sparkfront, to 1 coil
2 spark to coil 2
3 spark to coil 3
4 spark to coil 4. rear cylinder is 4.
1,2,3,4 front to rear.
