3) Spark: From battery to spark plug

The battery is the source of stored electrical power in the vehicle. A voltmeter between the terminals of a healthy battery should read 12.5 volts. A reading of 12.2 volts indicates a flat battery and a reading of 10.4 volts indicates a dead cell (each cell beingabout 2 volts). A battery should be capable of sustaining high current, as needed by the starter motor when turning the engine over. When the car is running the voltage measured across the terminals shouldbe between 14.2 and 14.5 volts. The value is the voltage being supplied to the battery by the output charge from the alternator. THis charging voltage should not alter much when additional load is applied to the battery (head lights on etc).
When the ignition key is turned to the second position,often referred to as 'key on engine off', all car functions are powered up including lights and fuel pump. When the key is turned to position 3 many ancillary functions are temporarily interrupted to allow the battery to meet the extra needs of the starter motor. Electrical charge from the starter switch passes through a master fuse and starter relay before energizing the starter solenoid. The starter solenoid moves the pinion gear on the starter motor to engage with peripheral teeth of the flywheel. Simultaneously, heavy copper contacts are bridged by this same movement causing the starter motor coils to become energized thereby turning the engine over.
During the ignition process electrical charge passes through the primary windings of the ignition coil(s). The engine control unit (ECU), taking signalsfrom the engine crank position sensor, collapses the field of the coil(s) appropriate to the cylinder requiring ignition. As the field collapses the secondary coil windings discharge very high voltage through the high tension lead to the spark plug. The charge is so high that at the spark plug gap the charge jumps across with a spark. The compressed fuel air mixture in the cylinder is ignited by this spark.
Checking the spark process starts with the plugs. The condition of the removed plugs reveals a lot about the nature of the ignition within the cylinders. Dark sooty deposits indicate overly rich fuel air mix and glazed plugs indicate overly hot lean mixtures. Removing the plugs (with the fuel pump relay unplugged) and holding the screw threads to the cylinder head whilst turning the engine over will reveal the quality of spark. The spark holders and leads should be examined for discharge through the insulation to the cylinder head. Removing the leads from the coil should reveal sparks emanating from the exposed connectors. Failure to see sparks at this point indicatesa failed coil (especially if neighboring coils show good spark) or a failed crank sensor if all coils show no spark.

All power seem to die on my 2004 Suzuki ltz250 it


If you mean a total shut down, just up and quit, I use a basic sequence in all my diagnostics. If it\'s dead dead dead, no lights or starter, nothing, start checking battery, connections, less likely ignition key and shut off switch on the handlebar. If starter turns, squirt a little starting fluid into the air intake. If it starts briefly or tries to, obviously it\'s fuel related, and you begine with tank, valve, line, filter etc. If it doesn\'t even spit or sputter it will ore likely be ignition. Pull a spark plug(s). I made a little device with an old plug and an alligator clamp so I can easily ground it to the engine and watch for spark. Open the gap wide like .050, a good strong ignition will jump it. Look for a nice consistent blue spark. If it\'s yellow and inconsistent, or none you need to dig into the ignition. Give this a try and write back, tell us what you find out. Best of luck to you

1992 celica wont start and now battery is dead


Engine starting depend on the following systems:
1. Fuel system (fuel level, fuel filter, fuel pump pressure etc).
2. Ignition system.(Ignition fuse, spark plugs, spark plug cords, distributor signal, ignition coil, and ignition switch)
3. Battery. (11.4 V - 14 V)
4. Cylinder compression. (145 psi - 190 psi, valve clearance)
5. Starter rpm (250 rpm)

Dead battery on 2000 clk 320 , after checking oil and plugs . first attempt to start click'd but did not turn over. Next i turned the ignition all the way off then on, it started. Next day, dead.


Well, first, the battery is not dead. You could have a poor electrical connection somewhere between the battery, starter, ignition switch, or another component of your start circuit, or possibly a failing starter solenoid, or ignition switch. Some electrical testing will be necessary to find the problem. A quick check the next time it won't crank over, is to pull the starter solenoid wire off and check for power on the wire when key is held in crank position. If power then, probably a failing starter solenoid. If no power there, then you have to diagnose the start circuit back through the ignition switch to the battery. Are all your battery and ground connections clean and tight? Starter connections? Use process of elimination, use care, and you'll find the problem.

01silverado will not turn over replaced the starter worked good for 3 days now its back to the way it was before also when the key is on the volt meter doesn't move and the battery is new


It would help to know exactly what the voltmeter was reading.
Although many US trucks have ammeters instead of voltermeters, which are not as useful.
If you are saying the ignition switch is not causing a heavy draw as one would expect from a starter, then either the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, solenoid, bad engine ground, or dirty battery terminals are reducing current flow. A voltmeter should read 12 volts from the battery when engine is off. Why you try to start, the starter should draw it down do about 10, but then when it starts and you rev it up, it should go over 13.5. If it does not drop to 10, then you have a blockage.

You either have a bad starter or ignigtion switch. When you turn the key on does everything else come on? I would check the starter first if you have power to everything.

all cables should be tight and corrosion free. this also includers the ground cabble fron engine block to the frame and the grouind cable from the starter to the battery. if all cables are tight then it could be that the solenoid on the starter is bad and needs to be either replaced or the starter itself

Hi! i think you must describe more problem symptoms;
DESCRIPTION The starting system includes the battery, starter motor, solenoid switch, ignition switch, inhibitor switch(A/T), ignition lock switch, connection wires and the battery cable. When the ignition key is turned to the start position, current flows and energizes the starter motor's solenoid coil. The solenoid plunger and clutch shift lever are activated, and the clutch pinion engages the ring gear. The contacts close and the starter motor cranks. In order to prevent damage caused by excessive rotation of the starter armature when the engine starts, the clutch pinion gear overruns. http://hmaservice.com/viewer/dispimg.asp?path=/data/Passenger/HY/HMA/ENG/SHOP-images/HY-SM13-IMAGES-ENG/ebkd010a.gif INSPECT SPARK TEST 1. Remove the spark plug cable. 2. Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug. 3. Remove the ignition coil. 4. Install the spark plugs to each spark plug cable. 5. Ground the spark plugs. 6. Check is spark occurs while engine is being cranked. 7. Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plugs. 8. Install the spark plug cable and ignition coil.
