Stihl pole saw no spark

The spark was intermittent at first but still wouldn't start, now there is no spark at all, I check continuity on switch and it is good, coil wire to ground has continuity.. is this correct? Or is there maybe a short?

Sounds like your coil has gone bad, usually when a coil fails the symptoms are as follows: intermittent spark when engine is hot, then no spark until engine cools down, and eventually no spark at all.

SOURCE: Repaired Husqvarna 41 chainsaw won't start.

Hi

The off switch of the chainsaw has to establish the continuity to kill the running engine.First check the switch with a measure apparat.Then check the continuity of the two wiring harness,sepparately.One wire is atached to the ignition module with a screw and goes to the off position of the switch.The other one towards the on position of the switch.Check the spring!

SOURCE: Husqvarna ranger 55 chainsaw starts but quits

I too have a rancher 55 and had what sounds like the same problem this week. It would start fine but run for only a few seconds at a time. I took it all apart today and found the problem - a cracked fuel line. In the places where I could see the hose it looked fine, but it wasn't until I removed the fuel tank that I found the crack...right where it exits the tank and then goes thru the housing above it. You don't need to remove the tank to replace the hose but it is easier that way. You do have to push it thru a grommet at the top of the tank. I read some other posts about checking the tank vent to see that it's not plugged up. Mine was ok so I knew it had to be something else. The vent is in a hole about the size of a pencil and is recessed about an inch into the tank on the upper right side. Its partially covered by a plastic cap that's part of the vibration damper, which can be removed to gain access to the vent. The vent tube can then be pushed out from inside the tank with the use of long needle nose pliers, but be gentle. I just loosened it then pushed it out with a finger. I put it all back together with a new hose and its running like new again!

A business card placed between the flywheel and module works quite well (the magnetic attraction even holds it in place).and is easy. Rotate it by hand when done to ensure there is no contact. HTH

check the battery in the key as the engine immobiliser may not be able to read the unit and assumes that you are trying to steal the car. It will allow all that you have said but will not allow the cpu to allow ignition and spark

Had an 84 silverado 305 that did the same thing. Try giving it a full tune up. Plugs, wires... Mine turned out to be fouled plugs. I didn't find that out till after i tore it down & put a timing set in it. Wasn't getting good enough spark.

Car wouldn't start .told crankshaft sensor faulty / replaced but still not start & smells as if flood cab


Before you go for anything, try the following: 1) check if there is any spark goes from distributor or coil to leads .
2) check if your car fitted with injection system,if the injectors are spraying correct or are not. If not means that too much fuel in the combustion chamber and kill the spark.
3)remove the spark plugs - after you start for couple of times - if are dry or wet. if are wet probably you have problem with the injector or spark lead,coil or distributor.
4) blocked catalytic converter.
5) ECU ( Electronic Control Unit.) faulty.

TVS scooty pep plus not starting, changed with new new battery & new spark plug - no spark coming (I have tested the spark plug connected outside touching scooty metal body & start-kicking)


Possibly a bad ignition coil. Check the connections at the ignition coil,make sure they are clean and tight, If so,..then most likely either A: the ignition coil is bad,or B: the pickup on the stator rotor is bad or the rotor could be rusted on the raised portion where the pickup get its signal.

Verify if there is spark or not when cranking the engine over. If not, could be the pickup coil inside the distributor-this is what tells the control module what position the crankshaft is in, for delivering spark at the right time.

Having problems starting a 2001 Triumph Adventurer. Previous owner let the bike sit for a while and a nephew started it and ran it periodically. Wouldn't start reliably and when it did it...


There is also a switch on the kick stand, check that for being junked up or loose also. Is the neutral light on, again the ECU will be looking for the neutral light or at least the trans being in neutral. Then you may just need to try adjusting the clutch. Feel for a resistance then adjust for a bit of slack on the lever. They do not have your particular model but look here at this site for a manual on a Triumph. Most company's use the same wiring on other models or at least you can get an idea of where to look. www.carlsalter.com Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

I have a 1991 tzr 125 rk2 it wont start changed coil ,new battery,new ht lead and cap, checked pulsar coil just bought it and cant think of anything else getting a weak occasional spark but wont fire also...


Dirty contacts in the ignition switch contact base. You may not be able to disassemble and clean your switch but you can check the wires for continuity. Your handle bar kill switch can also be be a source of intermittent spark.
