Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! If you remove the kill wire from the coil , do you have spark? If you do, you have a kill wire circuit problem, and yes, it can be a bare wire or even a keyswitch or kill switch shorting out the spark. No need for me to call and waste your money!

phone call starts at $50.00. Not worth your while. Site does not allow direct call, has to go through them. There is no chip! You have given no model number. Simple ignition system on small engines. Ci and magnet make he spark, and all you have is a single kill wire. Remove the kill wire and if you have spark you need to trace the kill wire. If no spark, your new coil is bad!
