Hello there,

Have you scanned for codes set?

What distributor are you using?

The two coil wires will have 12v on both at key on, and while cranking one should flicker to ground on and off.

If this is not happening, either the trigger source or the amplifier or any wiring between is faulty.

Having said that, being a HSV, does it have the HSV security key alarm system?
