Ignition wiring on low tension circuit

Recently removed ignition coils on my Honda CBR600FV/F3/1997.
Reconnected the low tension circuit back to the coils but it won't start.

Any ideas on what to check. I know the wires have to go to the correct terminal, but as I have tried swapping them around and it made no difference not sure what has gone wrong

    the coils were only removed to gin access to the spark plugs, so the originals were removed and put back. the bike has been stood idle for about a month. the battery has been charged up overnight, the fuel from the float bowls drained in case it was stale or contaminated. i have spun the engine over in order to refill the float bowls bit do not know how long this is needed in order to achieve this particular task. ih ave not yet tried a spare plug on any of the ht leads but will be trying this this evening, and will report backon the outcome afterwards.

    f you swap {CDI feed} wires to the coils;


    do this with plugs laying on engine for test only..


    and the weak spark goes to the other coil


    its the CDI/pickup/ign voltage to the coils





    If the weak spark stays with #1+2 it's


    the coil/plug wires/caps...





    ....... Do the following, then retest......





    check to see that the plug wires/caps


    are not loose, plug wires are good....


    and that your fuses/connectors/wiring plugs,


    and "grounds" are all good /clean,and tight...


    including where coils bolt on................


    {connections must be good} do this


    before condemning the componants, as


    a bad connection will cause the same problems too

    If you pull in the clutch lever


    {activates neutral override switch}


    will it start.....?if so{bad neutral switch}


    if not, Check fuses/holders /connectors,


    that all are good{under left sidecover}?


    if all are good,


    youmay, need the start solonoid..

Have you check the fuse for that coil.... and chances are good that if the fuse wasn't blown.... you might have damaged the coil when you swapped the wires... i'll see if i can't find the manual and let you know what tests you can do on the coil.... was it a new replacement or a swap off another bike ?

Did you replace the coils with new ones, or replace them with existing coils? Was the bike starting before they were removed? How long was the bike not running for? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thanks,
Lee

    You will need to check all connections, and fuses, possibly the coil could have gotten damaged. Make sure it is all grounded properly as well. There are a few possibilities here. So it will basically just take process of elimination. You have ensured it was all connected correctly?
    Thanks,

My 2000 Road King bucks and hesitates when at low speed, now recently will stall out, what can I do?


You don't say if any work has been recently done to this engine, or if it has had regular maintenance such as tune-up or carb/fuel injector cleaning. My first thought is an extremely lean condition. Does it back-fire through the air cleaner?
Causes of lean condition could be dirty fuel filter, mal-adjusted carburetor idle circuit, dirty low-speed jets or fuel injectors, or even the ignition timing has slipped. If the filter hasn't been changed recently, do that first. Then, a simple solution for clogged fuel meters that oftentimes works is to add fuel-injector cleaner to your gas tank. An entire bottle to one tank (normally intended for a 17-gallon auto fuel tank) would be about right. Expect to do this for several tanks, then a couple times/year to keep the cab/injectors clean. If that doesn't work, time to get the tools out. Start with a Harley shop manual for your model. (If the cleaner makes things worse, your fuel tank is also filthy, and it's time to clean that as well as the carb/fuel injectors.)

no!
CDI MODULES (IGNITORS)
What is a CDI module? A typical CDI module consists of a small transformer, a charging circuit, a triggering circuit and a main capacitor. First, the system voltage is raised up to 400-600 Volts by a transformer inside the CDI module. Then, the electric current flows to the charging circuit, charging a capacitor. A rectifier inside the charging circuit prevents the capacitor from discharging before the ignition point. When the triggering circuit receives triggering signal, the triggering circuit stops charging the circuit, allowing the capacitor to discharge rapidly to the low inductance ignition coil, which increases the 400-600 V capacitor discharge to up to 40 kV at the secondary winding. This 40 kV then jumps the spark plug gap. When there is no triggering signal, the charging circuit is reconnected and starts charging the capacitor again.

Why can't I get my 1978 1000 sportster to fire, was then it stopped.?


1978 is back beyond my knowledge or expertise but:

Check your pick-up sensor located inside the timing cover, behind the adjustor plate. If the filament is not intact you will have no spark.
A defective coil, cam position sensor, or stator will also cause a no spark condition.
Ignition Coil Primary Circuit Test
Remove the coil. THEN set your ohmmeter scale to RX1 and place ohmmeter leads on the primary coil windings A (front of coil) to B (middle of coil), B to C (front of coil) and check for primary coil winding resistance which normal resistance range is 0.5-0.7 ohms. If primary resistance is not within this range check out test results below.

Ignition Coil Secondary Circuit Test
With the ignition coil removed from the motorcycle and the ohmmeter set to the RX1K scale place the ohmmeter leads on the secondary coil windings B (middle terminal) to
R (rear secondary terminal/socket), B to F (front secondary terminal/socket) and check for secondary coil winding resistance which normal resistance range will be 5.5-7.5K ohms. If secondary resistance is not within this range check out test results below.

Test Results
A low resistance value indicates a short in the coil winding which requires coil replacement.

A high resistance value might indicate that there is some corrosion/oxidation of the coil terminals requiring the coil terminals to be cleaned and the resistance test then repeated and if after the test is repeated the resistance is still high after the terminals were cleaned the coil must be replaced.
If there is an infinite ohms or no continuity) resistance value the coil is open and must be replaced.

Some time ago 4wdity posted that:

Take the plugs out of the heads, put them back in the wires, and lay the plugs on the heads so that they have a good ground. Turn the ignition on and then turn it back off. When you turn the ignition switch off, you should see a spark. If you do, then something is wrong with the ignition unit. If you do not see a spark, you have a bad coil or a wiring problem. You can also do this test by "hot wiring" the coil.Anytime you put 12 volts to the coil then stop it, you should get a spark.

If you have spark, it sounds like either the sensor in the timing cavity of the engine is bad or the electronic ignitionunit is bad.

3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at BOTH ends ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor or intake seals.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, and or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.

Yzf r6s error 30 how to fix or remove


Fault Code: 33
Diagnostic Code: 30
Symptom: Open circuit is detected in the primary lead of the ignition coil (# 1, #4).
Probable cause of malfunction:
Open circuit in wiring harness.
Malfunction in ignition coil.
Malfunction in ECU.
Malfunction in a component of ignition cut-off circuit system.

If the bike turns over but doesn't start I would check the kill switch and from there the wiring harness to the coils.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of initial checks:
  • 2nd 10A fuse in the fuse box;
  • IGN +12 on black/white wires going to the ignition coils;
  • IGN +12 on black wire going to the ignition control module;
  • IGN +12 on black/yellow and black white wires of the engine stop switch;
  • pulsing low AC voltage from the ignition pulse generator (white/yellow and yellow wires);
  • start with the sidestand folded up and/or the clutch pulled in.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Hi have a honda cbr 100f on a 1990 cant get a spark from it any help


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, for a no spark concern on a 1990 Honda CBR1000F, checks would be on:
  • presence of ignition +12 on the black/white wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating voltage on the yellow/blue and blue/yellow wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating low voltage between the yellow and white/yellow wires coming from the ignition pulse generator;
  • status of light green wire from neutral switch/indicator;
  • status of green/white wire from sidestand switch; or
  • try starting with the sidestand folded up and/or the clutch lever pulled in.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No spark on spark plug how to check ignator coil and pulse generator


To check the ignition coil, unplug the wires going to it and check the resistance with an ohm meter. There are two parts of it to check, the primary and secondary circuits. The primary circuit is the low voltage side where the black and green wires from the harness attach. The resistance through this part of the coil should be between 0.16 and 0.19 ohms. Check the secondary side by measuring the resistance between the spark plug lead and the primary side where the green wire was attached. The resistance there should be between 3.69 and 4.51 ohms.
The resistance through the pulse generator, as measured between the two wires that come from it, should be between 468 and 572 ohms.
Generally, the various components of the ignition system are very trouble free. If you're not getting spark to the spark plug, be sure to check all of the bike's wire harness and connectors for corrosion, melted connectors, broken wires, etc.

Hi nd welcome to FixYa,

On a Honda CB550K, wiring would be:
  • blue - from ignition coil to contact breaker;
  • yellow - from ignition coil to contact breaker;
  • black/white - to the ignition coils from the emergency switch (engine off);
  • red - from the center fuse of the fuse bank to the ignition switch;
  • black - ignition +12 from ignition switch;
  • black/red - I don't recall a black/red wire on the harness.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No spark at plugs but power to the coils


if you have power going in but nothing coming out.replace ignition coil as far as the pulse generator that is located by the stator coil it sends the signal to the ignition coil when to fire
