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,

2009 PontG64cyl misfiring on 3rd cylinder Codes p0300, p0303, and p0353.(its chugging at this point) My question is do I just go ahead and change the coil pack or do I start somewhere else? Thanks!


Before replacing the coil , to make sure that's what's wrong ,switch it to another cylinder to see if the problem moves to that cylinder ! This DTC is for a circuit control problem , DTC P0353: Ignition Coil 3 Control Circuit
I have seen lose wire connections cause misfires , there is a four wire connector at the coil marked A,B,C,D . C is L-BU that is the control wire from the PCM - engine computer . So basically it's saying there is a problem with that circuit !
The ignition system uses individual ignition coil/module assemblies for each cylinder. The engine control module (ECM) controls the individual coils by transmitting timing pulses on the ignition control (IC) circuit of each ignition coil/module to enable a spark event. The ECM monitors each IC circuit for improper voltage levels. Each ignition coil/module has the following circuits:
?€¢
Ignition voltage


?€¢
Ground


?€¢
IC


?€¢
Low reference


But change the coil to a different cylinder an see if the problem moves to that cylinder !

Ignition, no spark from the distributor. I there a voltage regulator in the loop?


If this is a fairly old car just trace it through this way.

Car in nuetral turn engine over while you watch the points. Are they opening and closing? Check gap.

Switch on ignition with the distributor cap off. Put car in high gear.
Rock car until distributor contact points are closed. If the rotor arm fails to turn it means the distributor drive has sheared. (rare but possible)

Flick the points open with your finger. There should be a small blue spark. Shade distributor from bright light so you can see it. If there is a spark as the points open it means the low tension side of the ignition is working correctly.

OIf there is no spark at the distributor points

check the ignition circuit with a meter of with a 12 volt bulb soldered on to two lengths of wire. Earth one wire from the bulb to the battery earth (an aligator clip works well). Check the bulb is working by touching the other wire to the other pole of the battery.

Put the car back into nuetral and leave the ignition switched on. The cil will have two low tension (thin) wire connections to it. One is from the ignition switch and the coil may be marked SW by it. Touch one end of your test wire on the connection and the bulb should light. This means the ignition switch is working. Try the other connection on the coil(usually labelled cb). If the bulb lights it means the low tension part of the coil is working. Test the low tension connection on the side of the distributor. Check all connections and remember it is possible to have a break in one of the low tension wires inside the insulation show move them about to check for that. This procedure will find any lt faults in the system.

If there was a spark at the cb points remove the test lamp and put the distributor capback on. If possible try this in the dark by using a blanket over the open bonnet while you watch. BE CAREFUL TO KEEP CLEAR OF THE FAN OR OTHER MOVING PARTS. With the starter motor turning the engine over and the ignition on look for blue flashes or sparks around the cap, coil, or leads which will indicate a fault. Keep your hands away since you can get an unpleasant shock.

The ignition system is responsible for the starting engine:
the primary circuite is battery, ignition switch, ignition contact, condenser, ballast resistor. The secondary circuite. provide high tension to fire the spark plugs, add ignitioncoil, distributor, cap, rotoretc, high tension wiring, spark plugs. Test the mayor problem: 1) contact points and 2) coil.IF the ignition system do not provde the 20,000 or 30,000 volts, for spark plugs, will not work.

Easy test carefully:use screwdriver with the spark plug cables put around about 1/4 of inch againt the chassis give ignition, and some spark is coming, test by each spark plug cables, IF do not the coil can be faulty.

God bless you

How to replace ignition coil


there are 2 types of ignition coil: in the 1st picture (the red one), you just need to remove the screws attached to the vehicle, remove the 2 smaller wires, then remove the high tension wire. REMEMBER to mark the wire for the positive(+) terminal of the ignition coil. for the 1nd picture, this requires some skill. this type of ignition coil is placed directly under your distributor. so if you are not familiar with ignition timing (timings dictated by the angle of your distributor), do not replace the ignition coil by yourself

My 1994 Honda Civic will start, but dies as soon as I let off the ignition. Any suggestions?


I'm not a qualified mechanic but I have driven all sorts of cars vans and motorcycles.
Starting / Running problems fall in to two categories
(1) High Tension/Low Tension ignition or
(2) Fuel/Air.

For (1) it could be a number of things. Here are a few questions which may help eliminate problems.
Is the battery charged and holding charge (min 13.8 V normally)?
Is the ignition timing correct?
Is there a fault on the coil?
Is there a fault on the Low Tension circuit?
Has the distributer Cap got tracking marks?
Plug Gaps OK?
Are the sparks from the HT circuit nice and blue in color?
Is the "black Brain box" functioning correctly?
 For (2)
Is the air filter clean?
If Carbs are fitted are jets Ok?
If Carbs are fitted ae the diaphrams Ok?
If fuel injection are the injectors OK?
Slow Running set ok on idle?
Fuel filter clean?
Fuel pump functioning?

Hope these help

No power from ignition coil


ignition control module must be tested but is most certainly at fault

Engine codes P0354 P0351 engine skips low power


These codes are for a malfunctioning ignition coil/s.
P0351= ignition coil A primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
P0354= ignition coil D primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
visually check the coil packs for burn marks, damage, loose wire connectors, and the wire harness to each of the coils for damage. How long has this been happening? Has any work been done recently? Did the engine compartment recently get wet?

I have a Honda HT4213 lawn tractor, it does not have any spark. I checked the seat safety switch. It's good. pto switch, good. Neutral switch seems good. Engine does turn over but as I said no spark.


Flywheel and ignition coil are located on the rear of this engine. Remove covers as needed to reach the ignition coil. There are two (2) High-Tension leads (to the spark plugs) and one (1) small-guage wire.
The smaller guage wire is the engine's "Kill Circuit" trigger-wire. Everything electrical that makes the engine stop running comes back to this wire. Unplug it and check for spark with a spark tester.
SEE NOTE BELOW
If no spark, replace the coil. Part number 30500-ZA0-701.
If good spark, continue your wiring checks, possibly the control relay part number 38350-762-003 located roughly in the left rear of the engine bay.

NOTE: DO NOT START the engine with this kill-wire unplugged! There will be no way to turn it off until it runs out of fuel! Remove the spark plugs and use a spark tester and above all, BE SAFE!

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

No Spark from coil


i don't beleve 3 volt is enaf for the coil it has to be at least 9 volts
if this car has a resistor on the car or on the circuit going from ignition switch to ignition coil replace it, but if it does not have one then it has to have one built in the circuit wish is going to be very hard to find i will recomed you to get straight ignition power from ignition sw, to an aftermarket ignition resistor and from there to the positive side of ignition coil,
but also let me know what promaster means? is that the brand? or is that a performance coil?
and does your car has elecgtronic? or points system ignition distribuitor.
