Tem my briggs portable generator has no spark it appears ignition coil has failed. Items checked. disconnected kill wire to coil, disconnected oil sensor wire no spark this will be the 2nd coil


Test the coil electrically
A digital multimeter is required for testing the resistance levels of the ignition coil. The terminals of the coil are going to be marked "negative" and "positive," and these are the two points where the resistance of primary winding can be measured. Step 1: Prepare the multimeter
To check a 12 volt coil, set the multimeter to at least a 200 Ohms setting. Attach both leads of the meter to the coil-terminals with black to the negative terminal and red to the positive one.
Step 2: Test the resistance
The normal, acceptable range for a standard 12-volt car is 1.5 to 1.7 Ohms. See if the reading is within this range.
Step 3: Test the secondary coil resistance
Set the meter to 20K Ohm setting, and attach the leads to the ignition coil's center terminal. The reading for secondary-coil resistance should be 11, because if it is lower

Tip

Testing Xtype O2 Sensor


Engine Fault light on
Diagnostic code P0036 P0037 or P0056 P0057

The diagnostic code refers to HO2S Heater Control Circuit and a likely open circuit. It could also be the supply fuse however the heaters of the O2 sensors are prone to go due to age 30-40Kmile +

A rough and ready check of the sensors:

The heater of these sensors can can be checked for continuity using a multimeter set to ohms.

Disconnect the sensor (Black connector). Bank 2 is at the front of the car, Bank 1 near the bulkhead.

On the sensor side connector measure across the two pins connected to the 2 black wires from the sensor.

A reading 5 ohms and below (nom 2.5) is good.

Equally a resistance below 2.5 ohm may indicate a short circuit, but this will also be indicated with a blown fuse.

See http://www.bluejag.co.uk/

You will need a 22mm spanner to remove Bank 2 sensor and a special tool to remove Bank 1 sensor



If possible remove the sensor and heat it using a hot air gun (paint remover or similar not a hair dryer) monitor the resistance of the heater to ensure that it dos not go open circuit at temperature.
While you have the sensor out

If you also measure across the other two wires using a multimeter set to mV you should see the output of the sensor rise towards 0.1 volt as it heats up.

These are not 100% tests but give a good indication

What could be wrong with my tecumsa electric starter


Did you take the starter off and put power to it?
Open Ended it? you mean you placed it up on the auger and took the bottom cover off? The drive gearing has nothing to do with the Starter. O would pull the starter and see if Mice didn't make a home in there

Right side turn signals stopped working one day on my 1982 xj650, put in new flasher in and new bulbs and no change, If I need to do a resistance test on a voltmeter what do I need to do?.An explaination...


Hi dazsculpt,
I would start by checking the fuse for the right turning light. I think it is common for left and right. Check if the left turning light is working. If it is, you can use this as a reference.
Using a multimeter on your Yamaha is the same as using it elsewhere. The only difference is the setting you would use.
Two types of multimeters available are analog and digital. If you do not have a multimeter, I would suggest you purchase a digital.
A digital multimeter gives readings in numbers and is cheaper, whereas an analogue multimeter has a needle, and you have to read the correct scale.
Your multimeter will have instructions. There is a knob on the meter you turn to select the scale - voltage, ohms, amps, and maybe some extras.
The multimeter will probably have several ohm readings to select. You can select the lowest range for a start. Higher ranges measure very low resistance, and can even measure the resistance through your body!
Make sure that there is no power when you use the resistance measurement. Disconnect the battery on the Yamaha. It does not matter which way the leads are to measure resistance, it does for D.C. voltage, like your bike.
Remove both bulbs from the bike - left and right sides. There are two things to measure. The center of the bulb holder, and the housing of the bulb holder. Connect one leads to the center of the bulb holder should, and the other end on the flasher unit wire for that bulb. It should show a zero reading. Take another reading with the first lead still on the center of the bulb holder, and connect the other lead to the housing of the bulb holder. It should not show a reading, as this should be open circuit. If you have a reading, you will probably have a short circuit. Compare left with the right side, and there should be a difference.
Hope this has helped sort out the bike and use a multimeter.

Troybuilt snowblow electric starter won't start or turn over. Nothing happens. What could be wrong


if it does nothing, check to be sure you have 120v power out of cord
push starter button do you hear a click/ if not micro swtch is bad
if you do than starter motor is bad

How to test the mulltitester in a speaker


Hello
There are mainly two type of multimeters. The first type is analogue one, which will have a needle deflects inside its dial to show measurements, and the second one is digital, which will look like a handheld calculator, in which measurements are displayed digitally. You can read it diretly from it.I don't know which type of multimeter is you are using. If it is digital one, set it to Ohms range, and connect the tow meter probs to the two terminlas of the speaker. Before doing this, check the impedence, marked on the speaker magnet. Usually it will be marked between 4 & 8Ohms. You must get this marked Ohms measured on meter scale. For bothe type of multimeter, the proceedigns are the same.Please don't hesitate to rate this solution. OK.

Dear Sir:

Thank you by your request, I will help you inmediately.

How to measure FUSEAND CONTINUITY A digitalmultimeter is the ideal multimeter t use to check fuses. You can test afuse using either a digital volt-ohmmeter or an analog volt-ohmmeter. Thedigital multimeter uses a LCD to indicate the condition of the fuse under testwhile an analog meter uses a traditional meter movement to indicate the fusecondition. Difficulty: EasyInstructions
Things You'll Need
  • Digital multimeter or analog multimeter
1. Usinga digital multimeter
o 1 Connectthe test leads to the volt-ohmmeter. Plug the black test leads into the blackjack marked "Com" or "Common" on the front of the meter.Plug the red test lead into the red jack marked "Volts/Ohms" on thefront of the meter. o 2 Setthe meter's function switch to "Ohms" and the range switch to the"R x 1" scale. If your digital multimeter is an auto ranging meter,you will not have a range switch. Instead, you'll have just a function switchbecause the meter will automatically select the right range for the quantitythat you are measuring. o 3 Turnoff the power and remove the fuse to be tested from the circuit. Never test afuse for continuity while it is still connected to the circuit that it is usedto protect. If the circuit still has voltage, the meter will be irreparablydamaged. If the fuse is still in the circuit when tested it is possible to geta false indication that the fuse is good if the meter gets a completed circuitthrough other circuit components. To be safe, always remove the fuse from thecircuit before testing it. o 4 Touchthe black test probe to one end of the fuse and the red test probe to the otherend of the fuse. It does not matter which probe you touch to which end becausefuses are not polarized. You are checking to see if there is continuity throughthe fuse element. A reading of approximately 0.5 on a digital meter's LCDindicates a good fuse. Most digital meters read their own internal fusesresistance, hence 0.5 Ohms and not 0.00 Ohms. LCD readout of "O.L."indicates no continuity through the fuse. The fuse is bad and needs to bereplaced.

Thank you in advance sincerely. God bless you.

Car will not start in cold weather... back fires and putts... HELP!!


Check your ignition coils.Take a multimeter and remove the plug wires.Now the coils are all paired so you need to set your multimeter to read ohms.MEASURE THE RESISTANE ACROSS EACH SET OF COILS.They should all read within 1000 ohms of each other.If not replace the coil pack assembly.
