Crank no spark, please read my very first post
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I've tested the coil and found battery voltage, a trigger signal for the transistor in the coil and a ground reading just over 200mv. The trigger signal I tested with my led test light, which was a little dim
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I'm not sure if the ground is good enough?

what was trigger reading??

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
All I have is a dvm and led test light.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
My led flashes on the trigger wire from ecm

ok thats good. its only a 5V reference voltage

Ask Your Own Car Question

check ignition coil fuse, engine fuse, and PCM fuse

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Verified all fuses good, coil has battery voltage, and a good ground, and a trigger signal, maybe these coils aren't compatable. These are 2001 one ignition coils and the vehicle is a 1999, whatcha think? I thought because they were 3 wire coils they would work.

they should all be the same

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I noticed the 2001 isuzu troopers use a ignition module on top of intake manifold, the 99 doesn't have that.Are there different transistor type coils, for the trooper.

im reviewing now..

Ask Your Own Car Question

sorry the coils are different 2000-2004

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
that means there not comparable right,lol
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Compatable I mean,lol
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
that makes more sense because everything voltage and ground wise is present, they changed the design on these coils apparenty,

yes the coil is totally different

Ask Your Own Car Question

all the coils are 2001??

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Yeah unfortunatel, this was a engine swap from a 2001

and the old coils??

Ask Your Own Car Question

you have to put the 99 coils in.

the 2000 and up igntion system runs with a ion sensing module and and ignition module. that uses the CKP for signal.

the 98-99 the PCM sends the signal to coils
