Well you don't list a model or type of motor but with most coils like this they require some type of points or rotors that tell the coil when to send fire to the spark plugs. You might also have a crack in the top of the coil that causes the spark to not fire correctly or efficiently. If this is an older motor and you have points, the points may be burned and need to be replaced and adjusted to the correct firing gap. There are two leads going to the coil. One from the battery and the other lead comes from your points. That is the lead that sends the signal to fire. You need to follow that lead to it's source and that should lead you to the problem as to why the coil isn't firing correctly.

Test the Coils . The coil produce the high voltage for wire plugs+spark plug+motor. If the coil is defective you ignition system can be wrong. see the diagram attached.

No spark going to spark plug


First you should get a new plug. Then look at the coil to see if it is got good ground.. Make sure the plug wire is good... If that doesn't work then check the coil if you can't find a dealer to check. Most electric components are under warranty, even some life time. Good luck.

18.5 hp Briggs & Stratton no spark after running out of gas


I believe you are right about heat induce electrical problem.
About all there is for ignition is the coil and breaker points.

Before you threw a bunch of parts at it maybe you should at least see if it has spark. If it doesn't have spark then the crank sensor and coil pack would be appropriate. If it is not getting fuel then the fuel pump, filter, etc. would be the way to go. So see if there is spark, do this by pulling a spark plug and see if there is spark out the end with it plugged into the wire and cranking it over. If there is spark put all this back together and squirt some fuel into the throttle body while cranking it over, if it tries to start but doesn't try to start on its own without squirting fuel in it then the fuel pump is bad. How many miles on it? Possibly the cam timing is off. Maybe take a compression check and see if the cam is out of time.

2001 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 C cranks but won't start. Doesn't seem to be getting spark to plug


Check your pick-up sensor located inside the timing cover,behind the adjustor plate. If the filament is not intact you will have no spark.
A defective coil, cam position sensor, or stator will also cause a no spark condition.

Good luck, i hope this will FixYa and get your bike back on the road.

Hi, I have a 1998 cbr 600f3. There are 2 coils on this bike for 4 cylinders and two wires coming in and 2 coming out(spark plug wires going out). I can only get one side of both coils to fire so the bike...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On the 2 ignition coils:
  • two wires coming in - black/white carries/supplies IGN + 12 to both coils and the ignition control module. Coil1 (left) is connected to the ICM by the yellow/blue wire while coil2 (right) is connected through the blue/yellow wire;
  • 2 coming out - left coil powers 1 & 4 while right coil powers 2 & 3;
  • 1 &4 will fire together; so with 2 &3.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
