We had trouble getting the vehicle to start. I found that I had zero volts on the positive terminal of the coil. I disconnected it and supplied 12 volts directly to the coil. The cat started and runs fine. With the wire from the ignition switch disconnected from the coil, it has 12 volts on it. When I touch it to the coil, the voltage goes to zero. I have replaced the coil and get the same readings. The coil that was in it (not sure it was original) said that it had to have a resistance in the line. Thought that might be the problem, but cannot find a resistor. Is it possible that this model has a resistive wire, but if that is so, why would the voltage drop to zero with the new coil. What is the original configuration (is there supposed to be a resistor and a coil requiring such? If so, how do I find the wire or do I have to get a replacement and if so where? Would it be best to install the new coil that does not need the resistance and connect it directly to a 12 volt source?
have the same problem?
