No spark, how to test trigger coil?
I have been tracking down a lack of spark on my 96 GTX.
New battery, full charge
Two beeps when attaching key
Cranks over no problem
I think I have pulled everything apart, checked all the fuses, cleaned everything ...
I put the test light to the white wire on the coil & get nothing. So I've pulled my mag cover & the unit looks new.
Is there any way to test this? Anything else I should be testing?

Just throwing this out there, but did you make sure ground wire coming from rear electrical box connected to negative battery terminal? Will cause no spark.

I do know that if your battery is not at 100% it will also not let it spark sounds weird but I saw it myself with a 96 gsx looked at everything swapped in brand new charged battery still running today perfectly, and also if plug wires are old clip about 1/2 inch off the very end of them you will notice a big differance in that also

Battery is 100% charged & brand new. Cranks over no problems.
How exactly do I meter the trigger coil? I put a test light to the white wire on the coil and got nothing.
The trigger coil looks brand new, I think it was replaced.
How/what do I test on the CDI?

check that GROUND wire terminal again off the coilbox, under the wire shrink stuff..i've seen these appear to be hooked up BUT the wire broken on the inside

Just traced everything again.
Ground is good, battery is 100% charged.
Advanced diagnostics gives the 1 short 1 long all is ok beeps.
Two short beeps when hooking up the key.
Cranks over strong but no Spark.
Think Ill take it to the dealer.

Yes I think so, just be sure to get all the ground wires on the coil clean and tight as you will get no spark otherwise.
