    1997 SLTX no spark after update

    My stator died last year. I purchased a used updated ignition system that was on a '96 sl900. I installed the updated system and got no spark. I refered to the service manual and tested the system and everything past all tests. I double checked and cleaned the ground connections. Still no spark. I removed the stator and checked the wiring for any cuts or shorts, cleaned the stator ground and reassembled. Still no spark. I do feel a small amount of power with my fingers from the plug caps when cranking the engine over. My battery cranking voltage is 11.5v. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Is it possible the ignition components you bought are not working? CDI in particular?

    Did you check the part numbers to verify the components are all Gen III (Upgrade Kit) parts?

    Thanks for the reply. Yes the part numbers are 4010403 stator and 4010447 CDI. It is possible that these components could be faulty. I have tested the whole system several times and all test number are correct according to the service manual. Do you know the voltage output of the CDI to the ignition coil?

    Disconnect the Black/Yellow CDI wire. That is the ignition kill signal.
