The battery doesn't have enough power to keep the spark going. you need to replace the battery.

    Does the battery need to be hooked up and charged to provide voltage to pulser, for spark?

Why dont i get a spark? was running fine. i folded handle wrong. now wont start. hadnt used charger to start before.


Hello,

Don't connect both blgack cables. 1 is the ignition cut-off. Probabilly, one of both cables has a yellow or white striping. This is then the ignition cut-off. You won't have ignition if this cable is grounded.
Check also the cable in the area where the handle folds for damages!

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.

Dont know how to start my honda cb 350


First- turn on the gas. wait for it to get to the carb. Next switch on- close the choke, give 1/4 throttle, Kick it - if it's a no start after about 4 kicks - open the choke and give 1/2 throttle and close the gas.(your flooded)- 4 more kicks and check the spark plug for wet fuel or dry. If dry- dip the business of the plug in fuel and try again. Still no start- replace the plug.

If all that fails- you can disconnect the ignition switch and that will separate the wiring from the ignition- be careful here because you can not shut it off with the switch it can be killed with the choke or pull off the ignition wire to the spark plug.

Still no start, do a compression test as it needs at least 80# to fire.

My honda Eterno gives me problem while starting, I have already replace the stator coil as well as i have also check the CDI unit & air filter, still it doesent get started., So can you help me to...


You need to check if you have spark and fuel:
1: Remove spark plug and fit it back in the plug cap, crank over to check spark

2:If you have spark check to see if plug is wet or dry
(a)If dry, there is a fuel issue and you need to check by the carburettor and tank for fuel and/or any vacuum hoses not connected.
(b)If wet you might have a faulty plug or flooded in which case try starting with full throttle and no choke(if Manual choke)

3:If no spark, look for the cutout switch(normally on the right hand side handle bar) to make sure it is on and that there is no water residue on any HT leads etc.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On a Honda Cub EZ90, as shown in the wiring diagram, ignition wiring bypass would be:
  • short red & black wires of the ignition switch;
  • disconnect black/white wire from the ignition switch.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Have no spark. Changed coil & CDI box so far. still no spark. Is it the internal coil? 1989 enticer 400T/R


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, suggested checks on the wires:
  • black of igniter unit tied to ground;
  • orange wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • gray wire from igniter to ignition coil with pulsating voltage when starting;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to igniter and ignition coils from engine stop switch;
  • IGN + 12 on red/white wire to engine stop switch coming from 10Amp ignition fuse;
  • pulsating low voltage from pickup coil between the wires black/white, white/green & yellow/red.
Postback results of above voltage tests.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa. Happy Holidays.
