T-2 No Spark

Im not getting any spark on T2. I checked with 2 other trailing coils that i know are good and still nothing. I checked the wiring from the ECU to the coil and its fine. The car will start and idle. I pull the plug wires at the coils and im getting spark on L1, L2, T1 and nothing on T2. Anyone have any idea whats going on.

Have you changed your plug wire? If you did, its gotta be a coil problems, i dont think the wiring is for seperate parts of the coil, i remember mine had 2 wires, but i dont think 1 was for each T side.

How are you testing spark at the coil? Im stupid and messed it up. Are you sure you have a working coil?

So it may not be the coil. Did you test your ignitor?

i had someone tell me that it was most likely an internal problem with the ECU and i was going to have to send it back to microtech to have it tested and repaired

Well than get another stock ecu. If its a stock ecu, we cant really help you here. It could be anything from your wire harness being old and cracked, to your ecu failing.

Cheers
got it started and also found a vaccum leak wich was preventing start up
once startup is active there is no probs with idling just lack of power
it seems that its running but does not run that well due to no spark on T2?
bad ECU is my best geuss
cheers all

Exclamation

I kind of having the same problem !!!

The car was working perfectlly fine. Store it for about two months then the L1 and T2 do not work !!! I didn't change anything as far as computer programming.

I have checked the connection its fine. the coils are brand new, duble checked them and they are good.

checked the ECU it is working no errors and the connection on the MT seems to be working !!..
Don't know what to do.????

how long did it take to send it to Microtech ?? and get it back ??

Thanks guys.
