Went to start her up this morn

Went to start her up this morning for a little drive. She would not start. FP is running, and the plugs look fine. I replaced the rear 4 while I had them out. Will check for spark when I get back from dinner.

I had this same issue back in December. I thought it was the alarm or battery. New battery now and the alarm doesn't seem to be the problem as the starter engages. Any ideas?

Am I on the right track?

I'm going to guess it'

I'm going to guess it's a cold start system issue.

You should probably have a look at the CS Thermal Time Switch located in the block, under the Intake Manifold. You can easily check it with a Multi Meter.

Would you check it for continuity? Closed when cold and open when warm?

The cold start injector is wor

The cold start injector is working, have power to both coils but not at the plug. Checked the connections at the Digiplex computers (Both look good). Will be making second ground wires today per JR's reccommendation. Will get back at it tonight cleaning a few connections.

Thank you JR for the coaching.

Hi Jeremy,

Don't know


Hi Jeremy,

Don't know if this will help but if you'd like my 328 uses Microplex have ohmmeter values for each terminal on coil multi-pin connector (not sure what they mean, but measured while off & recorded - both were identical). Not sure if this would be applicable to your coils?

Carl

PS Drop me an email at [email protected] with (my sister's house) contact info - looking forward to meeting you also!

Jeremy,
I'm having that same problem. What type of alarm do you have? It obviously has ignition kill. How did you bypass it? I think my Clifford is stuck in disable mode even though it's off by remote switch...Thanks, Patrick

Hi Patrick,

My alarm is


Hi Patrick,

My alarm is an Avital Tornado. It was installed by the original owner way back in the early 90's. It is weird! I disarm it, the lights blink. I turn the key and the starter starts, fuel pump runs, everything is normal except for no spark at the plug.

At this time I have not bypassed it. I un-hook the battery and the alarm unit resets. It acts like it gets caught in a particular mode and can't get out of it. I would really like to upgrade to a new alarm system.

Good luck with yours.
