GENERAL INFORMATION

Check of resistance of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition

1–ignition coil;

2–plug "1";

3–plug "4";

4–plug "15"

The coil of ignition fails very seldom. Check the coil an ohmmeter, measuring resistance of primary and secondary windings in the following order:

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. To disconnect a wire from the "minus" plug of the storage battery.
2. To disconnect wires from the coil.
3. To examine the coil. If on it there are cracks, the coil to replace.
4. For check of resistance of primary winding to connect an ohmmeter to plugs 2 and 4. Resistance should be within 0,52–0,76 Ohm.
5. For check of resistance of a secondary winding to connect an ohmmeter to plugs 3 and 2. Resistance should be within 2,5–3,5 kiloohms.
6. If resistance differs from specified, the coil to replace. It is necessary to consider that defects of the coil are not always shown in a cold condition therefore if there is a suspicion that the coil is faulty, it is possible to replace for check it new.
