What would cause an ATV to have no spark?
Why An ATV Has No Spark What is this? The most common reason an ATV is getting no spark is a bad spark plug, either the wrong plug all together or just not gapped correctly. Or the spark plug just went bad, that happens quite often and it’s normal.
How to diagnose ATV no spark?
How to test ATV has no spark??
- Make sure the engine has the correct spark plugs, and they’re gapped correctly.
- Check the spark plug wire condition.
- Disconnect the main electrical connector coming out of the engine, and then check for spark again.
- Test the stator resistance.
How do I troubleshoot no spark?
If you do not see a spark, there is an ignition problem. Remove a plug wire and insert an old spark plug or a spark plug tester into the end of the wire (the plug boot). Place the spark plug on a metal surface on the engine, or ground the spark plug tester to the engine. Then crank the engine to check for a spark.
Will a bad CDI cause no spark?
Sometimes, a bad CDI does not cause sparks at all. Again, when a CDI box is about to go bad, it can lead to misfires, issues with starting, rough running or even stall the motor. Therefore, the only way you can tell whether your CDI has a problem is by confirming that everything else is in the right condition.
How do you start a quad without a spark?
- Confirm that the ATV actually has no spark.
- Make sure the kill switch is on.
- Make sure the battery is charged and has good ground.
- Check the spark plug.
- Check for loose, damaged, or corroded connectors.
- Check for damaged wires in the wiring harness.
- Check the kill switch and other safety switches.
- Check the ignition coil.
Will bad stator cause no spark?
Without a stator, your motorcycle will not get any spark at all as your battery is not capable of supplying the appropriate power levels to generate a spark. As a result, if your stator is going bad your motorcycle will run very poorly. Eventually, your stator can prevent your motorcycle from starting at all.
Can you bypass CDI box?
You can temporarily bypass a CDI box for troubleshooting purposes. The box amplifies the small signal generated from the spinning magnet located in front of the pickup coil in the stator, just before top dead center (TDC), when your fuel-air mixture is ignited. The box can’t generate continuous sparks.
