Cooked Coil

Trevor Croft

Recommended Posts

Whilst fitting a set of sequential change-up lights earlier today I managed to earth the coil via the tacho connection thanks to my clumsy crimping of the screened input lead. I didn't realise until I smelt the coil insulation overheating about five minutes after turning the ignition on. The coil was too hot to touch and some insulation has run out. The car still runs but I am concerned about damage to the coil due to the 100 percent duty cycle imposed. Also, could the windings have shorted, potentially overloading the ECU output stage? Any thoughts?
