Yes it should be 12v nearly all cars are, the thing you need to know is the amps for the altenator, a regular battery here in the UK is called a 063, bigger batteries are 065

Hope that helps

1994 escort wagon 1.9l won't start. Replaced starter. no joy. Doesn't even turn over. battery voltage is good. all lights work. when key turned to start everything turns off as normal. voltage to the...

There should not be any voltage to the control wire on the starter except with the key in the "Start" position and the transmission shifter in "Park" or "Neutral". By "control wire" I mean the small wire attached to the small terminal on the starter solenoid.

If the large wire connected to the large connector on the starter solenoid is what you are calling the "control wire", then the voltage readings you gave indicate a poor connection of the battey cable.

94 ford escort no fire

Hi there!

You've done the most obvious, and we're still in the process of elimination -
You said -"no fire" so that's completely dead - not even a missfire?

The problem should be at the coil, or 12V side of things.

The coils usually fail at high voltage, - so test OK with a meter, just break down in use as the insulation is defective.
I had a car that was stripped of everything - and it ended up being a defective coil - which is what I suggested in the first place.

Make sure you are getting 12V to the coil with the ignition ON.

If possible test the coil by using the HV output directly to a spark plug (one of the old ones) - then ground the other terminal.
(make sure you have both contacts) You should get a spark when turning ignition on and off.

Any noise from the coil during testing will indicate a fault also.

Check battery condition and clean contacts as a precaution.
Don't shock yourself! - take safety precautions against this.
