    02 genesis i no spark

    Have a 2002 Genesis I the the Ficht engine. Tested the stator and all seem to read around 0.8 ohms on every coil, which I assume is ok?
    I'm having in issue with no spark. The CPS and TPS sensors are good but something isn't delivering the spark?

    Is this the same Genesis you posted about last year?

    Was anything done with it between then and now?

    It has not worked since it failed in 2010?

Now this summer uncovered it and the battery was dead, which is understood for sitting all winter so we charged it.

    It now cranks over fine but we have not spark. I've been reading these post and trying to understand what I need to do but can't quite understand them. Like I heard it could be the stator, but I'm not sure how to test that.

    I like this pwc and would hate to get rid of it. Thanks for the help!
    (I hope I gave you enough info on it)

    Correct, the same polaris. A few times here and there we charged the battery and tried to start it but no success.
    What should I look at first?
    When it cranks over, is there a voltage that it can't drop to and it won't spark?
    Like ours, will drop to around 10v when it cranks over, is this enough to spark?

    10 volts is really weak. You want to see 11.0 volts while cranking, if not more.

    Polaris engines do not like weak batteries. You may have other engine issues, but a weak battery will have you chasing your tail.

    And no boosting with outside batteries or fast chargers. It is easy to cause a voltage spike which can fry the electronics.

    I recommend a good quality factory sealed AGM battery, like the Deka ETX16L
