Is there a constant 12 volts to the coil
Kia Mechanic: john aka eauto, The Car Guy  replied 8 months ago
  1. Measurement of the primary coil resistance Connect the negative (-) terminal of a 3 V power supply to terminal 2 of the power transistor; then check whether there is continuity between terminal 3 and terminal 2 when terminal 1 and the positive (+) terminal are connected and disconnected.

Replace the ignition coil if there is malfunction.
