We've been having trouble starting my brothers stock '84 for about a year now. In fact it sat all winter because he didnt have time to work on it. Now that its getting warm he wants to drive it. Heres the problem.......
We are getting no spark. It seems like we are getting power to the module, but not out of it. We have tried 2 NEW ignition modules.
This is a quote from Hollywood which explained a lot last year.
if you are getting juice to the ignition module (via the blue wire), put the red/blue plug back together and unplug the other connector (orange, green, purple, and black wires). Again, with someone cranking the motor, test the orange wire COMING FROM the module. If there's no power here your module may be bad. If this is the case, the bypass will not work - but replacing the module ($25) will solve your problem anyway
The really strange thing is when I test the plug comming from the module (Brand New)
- the orange wire has no power.
- the black and green wire shows a very slight current (dim test light)
Sorry this as been so long. It seems like a very strange problem to me.
Thanks in advance
