    Im in the process of starting my fresh install of a 4age, I just have a few wiring questions/problems.

    There is no spark while i am trying to start the car.

    Ive followed the wiring diagrams to the best of my knowledge but im not 100% sure.

    Is there anyone in melbourne that knows 4age wiring looms? lol

    no spark at all or just piss weak spark? check coil power and resistance, check ignitor, need to also check the trigger resistance in the dizzy, check main efi relay and fuse.

    download the diagnostic manual for the how to's, its a piece of piss, all u need is a multi meter and 2 x 1.5 volt batteries (test ignitor) and your sweet

    oh and make sure u have good earths, if u have intalled a new coil..like a gt40r make sure u file some paint from the casing to ensure a good earth, trust me if u dont your spark will be ghay and it wont start!

    I will try all these things hopefully tonight.

    Just one more question, does the ECU need a signal wire? apart from the normal power and accessories power.

    What i am thinking, the coil is not getting a signal to starts sparking somehow.

    Ok we got it started It turned out to be a ground wire to the ECU.

    Thanks for your your help guys.

    Just need to sort out the issue of why it wont rev over 2Krpm, just checking the timing now.
