5. ENGINE WILL NOT START OR RUNS ERRATICALLY MODEL 2A016-4.
The following procedures can be performed with either a digital or analog multimeter
refer to figure 5-26 for wiring diagram of electronic ignition system.
Step 1. Check low and high voltage cable ends for looseness.
Tighten any loose connections.
There are two high voltage cables, repeat step for both cables.
Step 2. Remove high voltage cable from spark plug. Ground cable and hold spring approximately
1/4 in. (6 cm.) from engine. Pull start engine and check for spark.
If spark is present remove and inspect spark plug (para. 4-19).
Step 3. Remove ignition control unit cover and check for moisture or foreign material.
If moisture is present clean and dry terminals and connections and repeat step 2.
Step 4. Check low voltage cable end to end continuity.
If continuity is not present in all three lines replace low voltage cable (para. 5-13).
Step 5. Remove wiring from no. 1 terminal on ignition control unit module. Measure resistance
between terminal no. 1 and ground.
If reading is less than 1 Megohm replace ignition module (para. 5-12).
Step 6. Remove wiring from terminals no. 5 and no. 6 and check resistance. Meter should show an
initial deflection then a reading of 1 Megohm.
If final reading is not 1 Megohm then replace ignition control unit ignition module
There are two transformers in the ignition control unit, repeat steps 7 and 8 for both
