Melted coil pack.

which engine? 4L or 4.7L?????
the pack shorted,
buy a new pack,
and pray it didnt burn up the PCM.
ALL high voltage coils fail.
Ignition, induction coils.
by dirt, heat, and the fact there is the giant
E fails (electrostat fields)
all three work hard to kill insulation and plastic potted coil packs.
also bad spark plugs can make this happen faster
as the voltage hits 100,000 volts in a misfire.
the heat and time can crack most plastics.
cracks are sure DOOM thing.

the coil can also burn up if the ecu ignitor transistor shorts. causing gross infinite dwell
that burns up all coil packs .
i always check my ignitor for shorts before
putting in any new expensive coil.
if you dont, you risk burning up the new coil in less than 5 mins.
some swap packs and now you have 2 burned
fun to watch that? not.
what i do is crank engine and measure my ignitor pulse. (with no pack there) if good
a new pack works. if no pulses the ignitor is bad.
(where is your ignitor)? INSIDE THE PCM. this year.

swap it out.
why not just read the free FSm, as posted here over 200 times
2000 WJ jeep it is, and the book , see chapter spark.
and error on this page, see instrument cluster and get igntiion
grin, not my error.? grin
chapter 8i -page 10 (8,eye)

4.0L and 4.7L sorry cant guess engines this life.

the 4L has huge 6 pack coil RAIL that?
athe 4.7L has, uses 8 COP got that?

my wild guess, based on tea leaves and dosing rods.
is V8
page 10 covers it

usually the left side goes bad, carbon tracking
most COP i just buy a new cop boot set for small money.
why not youtube 1000 replacing a COP.
you never posted a photo of the melt,
as when i see real damage it talks to me big time.
if the actual coil section melts, bad news

as you can see, it's just 1 screw at id 2.
and one plug at id 3... super simple, to remove
twist CCW, CW, CCW ,say 2 or three time,
the pull out while TWISTING.. to avoid damage.
the put back with dielectric silicon grease on tip
and where body fits tight to head well bore

I have lights that are on an intermatic timer and they are on all the time and I can't figure out how to turn them off.

You posted under Intermatic power pack.

Question does not give enough information.

1) If timer worked correctly before and then stopped working, then open link above for full troubleshoot help, including 5-year warranty information

2) If you cannot figure out how to program new timer, then read manual, and re-post question about any part of manual that is confusing. Expert might be able to help after receiving clear description of timer or model number and what you have done so far to fix problem.

3) If you need a manual, add model number for possible link to manual.

4) If you cannot find override switch, it is located above and to left of timer dial. Rotate switch to operate override.

5) If bulbs are burned out, then unplug power pack so it won't burn out, and then replace bulbs.
Match total wattage of bulbs to power pack wattage. Replace burned out bulbs as soon as they burn out so power pack will last many years.

6) Add a photo to your question by including link to Flickr

Absolutely feel obligated to upvote the help.
Or take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Just bought home. Don't know how to set timer.

I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers and electrical devices.

Below is link going to manuals
If you have a problem with the manual, get as far along in the manual as you can, and then add a comment at bottom of this post and I will help

Below is link going to a guide for setting up your malibu lighting

Let me save you some money:
1) Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack:
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts = 300 watt power pack ... if you buy the 500 watt power pack for 300Watts of bulbs, then it will burn up the power pack.
2) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and the power pack will burn out too
3) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or the power pack may burn out

If you need more assistance, add a comment and I will answer

How to fix a coail pack on a 1987 Pontiac 6000?

Coil packs are replaced not repaired if found to be defective. ---prev.gif next.gif DISTRIBUTORLESS IGNITION SYSTEMS Starting in 1987, some models came with engines equipped with a Computer Controlled Coil Ignition (C3I) or Distributorless Ignition System (DIS). Fig. 1: Triggering system used on the C3I fast start system 86812034.gif
Fig. 2: Electrical schematic on C3I ignition system 86812031.gif Both DIS and C3I system consists of the coil pack, ignition module, crankshaft sensor, interrupter rings and ignition control module (ICM). All components are serviced as complete assemblies, although individual coils are available for Type 2 coil packs. Since the ICM controls the ignition timing, no timing adjustments are necessary or possible.

Cyldiner #2 not firing. I changed the spark plug wires and the spark plugs but it didn't fix the problem.

it sounds like you have a bad coil pack on that cylinder, chase #2 spark pulg wire to coil pack to find which coil needs replacement.

Misfire cylinder 1 and 4,we replace injectors,coils,cat.conv after it burn out,and still misfiring,oh also spark plugs and boots

Curious if your classic was running yet? I have no spark at cylinders 2,3 which are operating on the opposite system as your problem. I replaced the crank sensor, and the coil packs to get this far. Anyone have wiring diagrams on this car?

If you have a volt/ohm meter, you may want to first ohm check the resistance between the two spark plug towers on each ignition coil pack. Simply remove the spark plug wires from each coil pack and test. Both (if good) should test about the same resistance, (about 5-7 kOhms, but I don't have the exact specs handy on this particular vehicle. The reading may be higher, maybe around 7-12kOhms) but nonetheless, the reading of the 1-4 coil pack should closely match the 2-3 coil pack. If not, the new coil pack may be faulty and should be returned for a replacement.

Also, when you remove the 1-4 coil pack, take a look at the primary spade connectors (2 lugs) coming out of the ignition module. Make certain these are clean and free of rust or corrosion. If so, simply (and gently) use a finger nail file or 400 (or equivilent) sandpaper to file the corrosion off and re-attach the coil pack.

If one or both of these don't fix the problem, you may have to look at replacing the ignition module. But only do that after exhausting the other simpler and less expensive tests! :)

I hope these tips help you out or at least point you in the right direction! :)

2004 Audi A4 misfire

it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps
