Yamaha G1 Golf cart...Engine does not crank when key is on and gas pedal is depressed... suggestion??.. I've heard that the CDI might be the issue...Discontinued part?

cranking is turning over which indicates that the battery and starter is doing the job
cranking but not firing indicates ignition or fuel problems
now that you have the correct terminology perhaps you can get an answer
first test is to pull a plug ground it out or use a spark plug tester crank it over to see if there is spark
Good spark forget CDI and coil so look at fuel
NO spark indicated , check for 12 volts from the ignition switch on the start circuit
Ignition switches have to power wires to the coil
on gives power when cranking and the other continues power when the starter is nor engaged
power in both positions move on to next check
no power from the switch to the coil when cranking --get new switch next check if both wires have 12 volts is the ignition circuit
check for safety micro switches not working right up to the CDI
power to the CDI but no spark --replace cdi
power from the cdi nut still no spark --replace the coil
AS to not available
check after marker as the units are generic and made by electronic companies not golf cart manufacturers so it is a distinct possibility that a cdi from some where else will fit

Cdi box, I keep blowing them after installing i get about 5 minutes and then lose spark to 2 of the 3 coils on my 2005 Yamaha Vector. Help

I had the same problem with my 2006 Vector. Blown 4 CDI units. Changed out complete wiring harness and Stator, new plugs, Carbs. We narrowed it down to the coils. They were for an RX1 (based on the part number). swapped out with OEM vector coils. installed new CDI.. Sled is running flawless now.

No spark from plug

Could be a wiring problem, Bad CDI unit, Bad Coil, Bad HT lead or a bad spark plug.. first thing to do is to take the spark plug cap off and hold the wire near the engine and see if a spark arcs onto the engine. if it does then its your spark plug or spark plug cap. If that doesnt work get a test lamp and check the voltage to the wire going into the coil, if it flashs the light then the coil is bad. If that doesnt work then it could be a wiring issue, so i would try unplugging the kill switch first. if that gives no joy then its a wire harness or CDI/ Magneto issue. So my next step would be to go to a salvage yard or mechanics with the bike and ask them to test the CDI (by using one they know is good or checking the wires).. they will tell you what the problem is from there. Tell them what you have done so far so they don't waste time.

Low spark on one spark plug

Sounds like you need new wires.....but the cdi box could be working only on one cyl. also........I would try new wires first.....

1996 zx11 getting sprk to one bank only

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The voltage on the green wire must be pulsating when cranking/starting the bike, not steady. Confirm by similarly testing the voltage on the black wire on the left ignition coil. If the green still reads a constant voltage, then the CDI is faulty; to be more specific, most likely that the switching tansistor inside the CDI that drives the right ignition coil has shorted.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Crf 450 carnt get a spark

The people who rebuilt it should have made sure it ran before giving it back. Check that there are no loose wires, and especially check that the plug which plugs into the black cdi unit is in correctly. Also make sure the coil is wired correctly.
