15-38 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
The ignition system produces extremely high volt-
age. Do not touch the spark plugs, ignition coils, or
spark plug leads while the engine is running, or you
could receive a severe electrical shock.
Do not disconnect the battery leads or any other
electrical connections when the ignition switch is
on or while the engine is running. This is to pre-
vent IC igniter damage. Do not install the battery
backwards. The negative side is grounded. This is
to prevent damage to the diodes and IC igniter

Crankshaft Sensor Inspection
Disconnect the crankshaft sensor connector.
Set the hand tester to the × 100 Ω range and connect it
to the crankshaft sensor leads.
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
Crankshaft Sensor Resistance
100 ∼ 150 Ω
Using the highest resistance range of the tester, measure
the resistance between the crankshaft sensor leads and
Any tester reading less than infinity (∞) indicates a short,
necessitating replacement of the crankshaft sensor as-
