16-30 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
The ignition system produces extremely high volt-
age. Do not touch the spark plug, ignition coil or ig-
nition coil lead while the engine is running, or you
could receive a severe electrical shock.
Do not disconnect the battery cables or any other
electrical connections when the ignition switch is
on, or while the engine is running. This is to prevent
Do not install the battery backwards. The negative
side is grounded. This is to prevent damage to the
Crankshaft Sensor Removal
Refer to the Stator Coil Removal.
Crankshaft Sensor Installation
Refer to the Stator Coil Installation.
Crankshaft Sensor Inspection
Disconnect the crankshaft sensor lead connector (see Al-
ternator Cover Removal).
Connect a digital meter [A] to the crankshaft sensor lead
Crankshaft Sensor Resistance
BL lead → G lead
96 ∼ 144 Ω @20°C (68°F)
If there is more resistance than the specified value, the
coil has an open lead and must be replaced. Much less
than this resistance means the coil is shorted, and must
Measure the resistance between the crankshaft sensor
leads and chassis ground.
Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short,
necessitating replacement of the crankshaft sensor.
