Hi,

I changed my ignition coil because it was dead and now i put a new one in about 2 weeks ago and now the car wont start and i dont have any spark.

So i need help as i dont know what to do. I havent changed the leads or plugs but they have done about 30,000KMs and its Dual Fuel as well

I have changed the Rotor Cap and the dizzy and TFI module are the same since i got the car.

So how do i test the TFI module and dizzy to see if they are getting spark?

See if you are getting power on the primary side of the coil (low voltage side) with ignition on.

Just a thought, is the smartlock light coming on? If not, it might be a BEM fault.

I disconnected the Clip on the Ignition Coil and tested it and it read 12v so its getting power,

So if the smart lock icon is ALWAYS on while i am turning the engine over it could be a BEM fault?

As the worked yesterday and i drove it around and filled up some LPG and this morning it didnt want to start and no spark

TFI module. :evil:

Always replace the TFI module and coil together, or one will kill the other. 8-)

Ok, What else can be the problem?

As this was a brand new coil and now it doesnt spark, so either its the Dizzy,TFI Module or leads

So i will try new TFI Module and Coil

It would be advisable. The gears then match (wear patterns).
