You should show 12 volts with key on, Can you test with voltmeter? Thanks
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I tested it 2 weeks ago and it showed less that 5v
Expert:  Mastertech 1 replied 6 years ago.
It should have 12v on both sides of coil,with key-on, Disconnect the two wire connector at the coil/igniter,and the test the black/red wire at the body side of the connector and see what the voltage shows then! (also have you tested the main fuse links, remove the clear plastic covers and then test each side of the links) Thanks let me know!
