Re: Voltage at Coil Positive by Ralph
Post New Message Joe, Thanks for the reply. The vehicle is a 1978 Dodge Sportsman van with the Motor Home chasis. It is misfiring so badly that I had to have it towed. Timing lite confirms all cylinders are misfiring. It runs but backfires and there is no power. Substitute coil and ECU make no difference. Voltage at coil positive is 5.5 Volts with the ignition on prior to starting. Timing is OK and distributor is relatively new. When running I was receiving HT voltage shocks through the ignition key which must be a good clue to the problem. Do you know where the ballast resistor might be located? I am planning to replace the ignition wires anyway. Ralph
