       NOTES
At the moment of preparation of the repair manual there is no information on size of resistance of primary winding of the coil of ignition on models from 1998 to 2000 and data on check of coils of ignitions/switchboards on models since 2001.
Check of resistance of windings of coils of ignition carry out on the cold engine as on the hot engine resistance will be more. By Steklolopodjemniki are immediately disconnected.

Check of coils of ignition carry out as follows:
Check resistance of primary winding to the ignition coil, for what:
– switch off ignition and disconnect electric sockets from each coil of ignition;

Fig. 6.1. Connection of an ohmmeter (1) to contacts of the electric socket for measurement of resistance of primary winding of the coil of ignition on models from 1996 to 1998


– an ohmmeter connected to contacts, measure resistance which should correspond to the value given in specifications, otherwise, replace the ignition coil (fig. 6.1) – the ignition coil on models from 1996 to 1998 is established on an arm on a partition of a motor compartment;
Check resistance of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition, for what:
– switch off ignition;

Fig. 6.2. Connection of an ohmmeter (1) for measurement of resistance of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition on models from 1996 to 1998


Fig. 6.3. Connection of an ohmmeter (1) for measurement of resistance of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition on models from 1998 to 2001


– mark and disconnect high-voltage wires from ignition coils; an ohmmeter connected to one contact of the electric socket and contact of a high-voltage wire, measure resistance (fig. 6.2, 6.3) ;
– if resistance does not correspond demanded, replace the ignition coil.
Replacement of coils of ignition make as follows:
Switch off ignition and disconnect a "weight" wire from the storage battery.
For models from 1996 to 1998 further works carry out in the following order:
– disconnect the electric socket and a high-voltage wire from the ignition coil;
– turn out bolts and remove from a partition of a motor compartment the ignition coil together with an arm;
– turn out bolts and remove the ignition coil from an arm;
For models from 1998 to 2001 of work see off in the following order:
– remove throttle knot from an inlet collector;
– uncover the air filter;
– mark and disconnect electric sockets from each block of coils of ignition;
– mark and disconnect wires from spark plugs;

Fig. 6.4. Coils of ignition (1) and an arm (2) models from 1998 to 2001


– turn out bolts and remove from the engine the ignition coil together with an arm (fig. 6.4) ;
– the coil of ignition fastens on an arm on the left side of a head of the block of cylinders;
– turn out bolts and remove the ignition coil from an arm.
For models since 2001 of work see off in the following order:
remove forward section of the case of the air filter;
each block the coil the ignition/switchboard fasten one bolt.
turn out a bolt, disconnect the electric socket and, having pulled up and at the same time turning, remove the block of the coil of the ignition/switchboard from the engine.
Installation make in sequence, return to removal.
