Testing




NOTE
Perform an ignition coil test after finishing the fundamental tests for the ignition system and the fuel and emissions system.

  1. Disconnect the three ignition coil 3P connectors.
  2.  
  3. Measure the voltage at each ignition coil 3P connector terminal No. 3 with the ignition switch ON (ll).
    1. If there is battery voltage, go to Step 3.
    2.  
    3. If there is not battery voltage, repair an open in the wire between the ignition coil and the No. 7 (15 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box.

  4.  
  5. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  6.  
  7. Check for continuity between each ignition coil 3P connector terminal No. 2 and body ground.
    1. If there is continuity go to Step 5.
    2.  
    3. If there is not continuity, repair an open in the wire between the ignition coil and body ground (G101).

  9. Disconnect ECM connector C (31P).
  10.  
  11. Check for continuity between the body ground and ECM connector terminals C4, C13, and C14 individually.
    1. If there is continuity, repair a short in the wire between the ignition coil and the ECM.
    2.  
    3. If there is not continuity, go to Step 7.

  12.  
  13. Connect the ECM connector C (31P).
  14.  
  15. Measure the voltage at each ignition coil 3P connector terminal No. 1 with the ignition switch in START (lll).
    1. If there is about 0.5V, replace the ignition coil.
    2.  
    3. If there is not about 0.5V, repair an open in the wire between the ignition coil and the ECM.
