SOURCE: Unable to locate fuses on a 2001 Sportster 1200??

look behind the panel on the left side by the battery. pull the fuse holder down. realease the little clip and tug it downwards. It sits in grooves and the body of the fuse block just slides up and down.

The original wires, one blue and one white, were with the points ignition. The white wire should be the "Hot" wire. Now, look at your wiring diagram. The two white wires should go together to one side of the coil and the blue to the other. There is no positive or negative side of the coil, just two small primary winding terminals. Make sure the white wire from the ignition system is the "hot" or power wire for 12 volts. If you connect the ignition unit up backwards, it will damage it. To make sure the white wire on the bike is the hot wire, simply turn the ignition switch on and check this wire with a test light or volt meter. It should show battery voltage on it. That should be your setup, two white wires on one end of the coil and a blue wire on the other.

Good Luck
Steve

What color wire do I need to cut just to put a toggle switch on to kill engine on 1990 Chevy Cheyenne 4.3 liter


If you kill primary voltage to the ignition coil, the vehicle shouldn't run. Primary voltage to the coil is the positive side of coil. It's a pink wire comes from ignition switch to ignition coil. There are many ways to do something like this. You can kill spark, you can kill fuel, whatever.

Just a Thought for you, Off hand I assumes it cranks, So Check the oil level, Some bikes if the oil is low you won't start. Engine Safety switch. Other then that Run a hot from the battery hot side to the Coil hot and see if it starts? AFTER checking the oil, You might have A blown Breaker or wire..

I have a 1989 sea ray boat. Does it have no power to the coil?


If you look at the coil you will see small wires on either side. One side is a ground and the other is power. Depending on the brand of outdrive you have the wires are color coded.

You should be able to see the color of the wires on the "Plus" side at the coil. Then follow the wiring loom back to the switches hanging by the shift cables on the engine. There are also wires on the UP/DOWN safety switches of the outdrive.

The outdrive must be down somewhat for the safety switches to release the ignition LOCKOUT. This is done because the driveshaft will snap if you start the motor with the outdrive up. Look for matching color coded wires to match the small hot coil wires.

The switches on the shift cables will LOCKOUT the starter solenoid so you can only START in neutral. Look for the color coded wires from the coil to see if they are on the correct set of switches. It is possible someone made a redundant connection and combined the ignition with the starter cutoff.

1983 yamaha xj 650 no spark already changed the cdi coil plugs wires and mag pick up what next?


  • Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the side stand kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is it shorted out?
  • Are you getting power to the coils?
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery.
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center or side casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

No spark


Check the side stand kill switch if your bike has one. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Install new spark plug.

If that doesn't do it, check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop. You can screw up a CDI unit checking it yourself.
