Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883

1 Answer

Ignition coil not firing.

I couldn't get the coil to fire. So I checked the coil, it's working. Is there a way to check the pickup on the cam with out taking it to a shop? And do's any body know where I can look on line for a Wiring Diagram for the Ignition for free?

Ignition spark


You need to replace the TFI module (on outside of distributor) and the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.

will try to help.try checking the ignitor assesmbly,with out it your truck will not get fire or low fire,so low you won't catch it. the ignitor gives it an extra boost of fire to ignite the gas in the cylinders. try that,but if it checks bad,used ignitors must match numbers with old onr. try used auto parts online. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Mercedes c200 elegance 1996 model mis-firing on cylinders 1-4


I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

No fire to coil


Do you mean no spark from coil? If so, check crank sensor, distributor pickup (also refered to as cam sensor) and ignition control module (if you have one it is located next to coil). Most common of these is failure of crank sensor. BUT, check before replacing. 'Won't hurt to buy a manual to guide you through testing!
