Hi Anonymous, the white wires will go on the top post next to the rear cylinder spark plug cable, and the pink or blue wires will go on the bottom post next to the front cylinder spark plug wire. This according to an official 1989 factory service manual wiring diagram. Good luck

SOURCE: keeps burning the coil

This is strange. I've been working on Harley's for almost 40 years and I've only run into two bad coils on the later model bikes. Are you using original equipment coils? If so, are you using the correct ones?

Coils come in different varieties for different uses. There are coils made for racing, road use, electronic ignitions, and points type ignitions. The coil you want is for road use with electronic ignition. If you use a digital volt ohm meter and test the resistance of the primary winding of the coil, it should check out at between 3 and 4 ohms. The "primary" winding is the coil of wire inside the coil that goes from one small terminal to the next. Put your DVOM leads on the small terminals, one lead on each terminal, with the meter in "R x 1" position. It should read between 3 and 4 ohms.

SOURCE: Rear cylinder does not fire 1987 FLHTC

If you're getting fire, but the cylinder isn't getting hot (I always check the exhaust pipe near where it exits the head), possibly you're not getting air/fuel mixture to that cylinder.

Is the intake valve opening?
Check valve adjustment?

No spark from coil to distrubuter


Disconnect the ignition coil output wire at the distributor cap.
Connect a spark plug to the end of the ignition coil output wire which you just disconnected.
Connect a ground wire to the threaded portion of the spark plug.
Disconnect the ignition coil ground wire from the negative terminal on the coil (Green Wire).
Connect one end of a ground wire to the ignition coil negative terminal.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
Tap the other end of the ignition coil ground wire jumper on an good grounding point (for example the battery negative terminal) and look for sparks at the spark plug that correspond to the frequency of your tapping of the ground wire.
If you have a good spark at the spark plug, the ignition coil is good.
If you don't get a good spark, check for approximately 12 VDC from the coil positive terminal (black wire) to ground with the ignition switch in the ON position. You should also get approximately 12 VDC from the coil negative terminal (Green wire) to ground
Ignition Coil Resistance Check

In addition to the test above, you may elect to perform an ignition coil resistance check as confirmation of the coil's condition.

Check the ignition coil primary coil resistance by connecting an ohmmeter between the positive (Black wire) and negative (Green wire) terminals on the coil. The resistance should be 0.4 to 0.6 ohms.
Check the ignition coil secondary coil resistance by connecting an ohmmeter between the coil output terminal and the ignition coil negative terminal. The resistance should be 5000 to 7200 ohms.

You may have a bad coil or bad ground or wire connection

Bought coil pack for 92 pontiac bonneville connected wires underneath pack and spark plug wires now will not start at all


Did you replace all three coil packs or just one?
Did you get the spark plug wires in theproper order? (if not it may not start).
What wire did you connect underneath the coil pack (there are no wires under the coil pack). A wire bolts/plugs up to the side of the coil pack.

I am having trouble fiquiring out which wire goes to which plug. The wires are different lengths and the correct wire length has to go specifically with the correct plug. I have the firing order dia


The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6
Cyl #1 is front left when looking at engine front to back
left coil pack connects to cyls. 5-2
center coil pack connects to cyls. 3-6
right coil pack connects to cyls. 4-1
It doesn't matter which connector on the coil you use just that the cylinder is connected to the proper coil pack (the coil fires both plugs at the same time, twice per each full 4 stroke cycle)

No fire.Changed coil,plugs and wires.Still no fire.97 softail


Test the connections on the coil to see if you've voltage to the coil. If so, disconnect the single wire from one end of the coil and make a jumper wire go back on it. connect the wire to the stud on the coil and then momentarily ground the the other end of the wire. When you take the wire loose from the ground, you should see a spark at the coil. If so, it sounds like the sensor down in the "nosecone" of the engine is bad.

Good Luck

Need coil wiring diagram


Contact points cover open.

Left side points are for cylinders 1 and 4.
Right side points are for cylinders 2 and 3

Left side points have a White wire coming from it.
Right side points have a Black wire coming from it.

One coil runs two cylinders.

One coil runs cylinders 1 and 4.
One coil runs cylinders 2 and 3.

No matter what style of ignition coil you use, the Black wire will connect to the Points. Whatever other color of wire they use, connects to the ignition switch.

BUT, check the specifications for the coils you're going to install. Connect the Negative side to the points. The Positive side to the ignition switch.

The Orange wire with a White stripe, coming out of the harness of the Suzuki Gs550 is from the ignition switch. It goes to a splice connector, and from there goes to two wires. The wires split off into one wire for each coil.

There is a White wire on the coil, that is used for Cylinders 1 and 4.
There is a Black wire on the coil, that is used for Cylinders 2 and 3.

White wire from coil not connected to anything, where does it go?


Is this white wire one of 3 wires coming from the coil? If so, it is probably for a tachometer (which your S10 does not have) so it does not go anywhere.

Wiring 12" icmb-5612 preformance teknique subwoofer


That sub has dual 4-ohm voice coils. It can be wired either as 2-ohm, 4-ohm, or as 8-ohm.

2-ohm = voice coils in parallel (both positives and both negatives connected to your speaker amp out wires).
4-ohm = use only 1 voice coil (either is OK).
8-ohm = voice coils in series (connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other and connect the remaining positive and negative to your speaker amp out wires).
