Question about Opel Kadett

1 Answer

1996 Opel Kadett/Astra 200i no power to ignition coil

The car is a 1996 model 200is with the 2litre 8valve engine and bosch motronic ecu. The car doesn't want to start. I check for spark, but there isn't any. I then checked for voltage on the coil itself (single coil, not coil pack) and I didn't find any voltage on the coil's primary curcuit. I don't have a wiring diagram for the car, which makes it diffecult for me to try and trace the ignition curcuit.

Do you have coil trigger on either wire to the coil? if so then apply 12 volts to the other wire to see if car will start.

SOURCE: Do you recommend bosch super 4 spark plugs for a 1999 opel kadett 200iS 8 valve?

Absolutely not

You always use, only what came with the vehicle,
when it was new

Those 4 prong & E3 type plugs, will not work
in some vehicles,especially those with COP

SOURCE: mercedes c200 elegance 1996 model mis-firing on cylinders 1-4

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

SOURCE: Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.

I have 1986 porsche 944 it start and shuts of what could be the problem.


I hate to say it, but, if it starts cleanly and quickly on all cylinders its likely to be a switch/sensor/ thermoswitch etc.
Does it run cleanly?
Are the fluid levels correct?
The fuel injection has a cold start system but the ECU needs information from intake manifold, water temp and incoming air flow to maintain its running.
Get on the web and go to Porche owners forums or find your nearest (Bosch?) agent to help.
Wikepedia says there are 3 engines and they use Bosch Motronic systems. See what yours has and search for diagrams/handbooks etc on the web/ebay. There's piles of stuff out there for Bosch systems.

The car wont start.


Hello! A few necessary items to successful troubleshooting; What engine is in the vehicle and, since it's a 1996, it has OBDII diagnostics and a Check Engine Light...Is the light on?...If so do you have access to a scanner to find out what trouble code or codes are stored?...Lastly, have you checked for spark? Because your saying it doesn't "seem" to be getting spark...Hate to hit you with a lot of questions but without these particular pieces of information it would be difficult to narrow down...Please add any thing else that seems important...Awaiting your reply...Guru...Saailer
