There should only be one wire to the coil. it plugs into a spade terminal and runs to a kill switch which is usually a piece of metal that comes in contact with a part of the throttle so when you either move the speed control to slow/stop or release the handle the two parts touch and ground out the module

My lawnboy silver series is not getting any spark

If you are getting no fire it is going to either be your coil is grounding out through the kill wire somewhere or your coil has gone bad. Try unhooking your kill / ground wire directly from the coil then check for fire. If you still have no fire then you will need to replace the coil. Hope this helps.

No hot wire to the coil 1997 Plymouth Voyager 3.3

Does the check engine light come on whe you turn the key to ON? It should come on, just as a little alert to you that the pcm is powered, and then go off once the engine is running. I'm not certain, but I believe on your car that the coil signal comes direct from the pcm, the engine computer. Check all the fuses in the power distribution center, especially a pcm fuse if you have one there. The Automatic Shut Down relay (ASD relay) is also there in the box. This relay cuts power to the coil and to the injectors when key is turned to off. Maybe something is going on there, you might try a different relay just to check. I think the A/C relay may be the same as the ASD relay, check the numbers on the relays. One shoulde be swappable with the ASD relay.
Good luck, I don't know what else to suggest. It would help you to find a wiring diagram just to check the engine ignition aqnd starting circuit, see how the coil gets its signal. Car repair manuals do have wiring diagrams.

I have installed the spark plug wires on my 1998 camry 4 cyl 2.2 l engine,but it's not starting and I think they are on wrong.Could tell me the correct way on both sides of the wires?

anyone that changes plug wires needs to change one wire at a time then there is no problem,for some reason people believe that it`s only a 4 cylinder how can i mess up 4 wires but people do it all the time if the ignition coils have numbers by the wire towers where the plug wires are connected those are the cylinder #`s that refer to the engine cylinders.#1 cylinder is at the front or far left when you are facing the front of the car then 2 then 3 then 4 as you look towards the just have to match the plug wire with the cylinder to the # on the coil towers.the firing order is 1,4,3,2 for this engine

Remove the plugs from the head. Insert into the coil wires. Make sure they are properly earthed on the engine. Crank the motor and check for spark at each of the plugs.
Refer to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3 to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).
To test the coil pack use a digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil 1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500 ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2.
Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.
Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.
I is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to see if it cures the problem.
C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module.
Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring, so see if you cant find an OEM coil wire to replace the broken one before replacing anything else.

I believe that this part is a thermostat. If im not mistaken, it shouldnt matter which wire goes on which prong. Think this is a reversable thermostat. It should have just 2 prongs correct? Jim
