Virage TX no spark
Ok, I need some serious help here, this thing is driving me crazy!
Had problem starting my ski, checked it out & starter was bad. Drawing heaps of current & flattened battery.
I haven had it too long so replaced battery, cables & starter is working ok, new one on the way.
Now it has had int starting issues, usuall taking a long time to start.
Now it has no spark.
When I bough it, the dash (instruments) were fried, & have been unplugged, I did wonder why the thing started without needing the security code entered, but hey it did so who cared.
Now it has no spark...
I followed test procedures here & found that the brown wire to the stator had no power under crank.
I added power to that wire & it fired up & ran.
Great, so I made up a wire through a switch so I could start it that way.
When I had the wire installed, no spark again, power or not...
When I power up that wire, I get a return signal from the stator that suggests to me the stator is good, & the ignition controller is bad.
I have no power to the coil unit inside the electrical box from the ignition controller, I have no trigger signal to the coils (ie no dwell) to fire them.
So it appears the ignition controller has failed.
But, if I get another, will it start without tha code? with the MFD unplugged?
Does my diagnosis sound correct?
Any help I can get would be most appreciated...
PS: The jumper wire mod has been done, few other jumper wire mods in there too!
