GENERAL INFORMATION

The transistor system of ignition should be checked at well charged accumulator and at a temperature of 0 ° – -40 °C. It is necessary to arrive according to the instructions given below.

The starter rotates a bent shaft, however the engine is not started
To check presence of high voltage on spark plugs
High voltage is present
To check system of ignition of the engine
High voltage is absent
To check presence of high voltage on distributor plugs
High voltage is present
To check a rotor and a cover of the distributor, and also a wire of high voltage. To replace the damaged elements
High voltage is absent
To check presence of high voltage on distributor plugs
High voltage is present
To check a rotor and a cover of the distributor, and also a wire of high voltage. To replace the damaged elements
High voltage is absent
To check presence of high voltage on ignition coil plugs
High voltage is present
To replace a wire of high voltage between the coil and the distributor of ignition
High voltage is absent
To check all electric connections of system of ignition
Too big power failure or temporary short circuit
To clear or replace sockets of electric wires
Damages are not revealed
To check presence of tension on the ignition coil +VE plug (accumulator tension)
Tension is wrong
To check the ignition switch, a condition of the accumulator and its electric wires
Tension is correct
To disconnect two wires of low voltage from the ignition coil. To connect to the socket a bulb of 12 V / 21 W and to include a starter
The bulb blinks in operating time of a starter
To replace the ignition coil
The bulb does not burn (does not blink)
To disconnect the multicontact socket from the distributor of ignition and to measure resistance between contacts of the socket
Resistance does not meet standard
To replace the ignition distributor
Resistance is normal
To connect the multicontact socket to the distributor of ignition to connect the new switchboard of ignition. To include a starter. The bulb connected to plugs of low voltage of the coil of ignition has to blink
If the bulb blinks, then to connect wires to the coil of ignition and to check whether the engine is correctly started
