I replaced the radiator on my 88sc and now I think I need an igniter.
Car was running just fine. I replaced the radiator, then filled the
cooling system at the water neck in the engine bay. I was a bit
careless filling the water neck and doused the igniter. Now the car
will not not start. I have fuel, but no spark, and a code 12. Code
12 is either the distributor, igniter, or ecu. The car cranks just
fine, but there is no spark coming from the coil. I opened the
igniter. It was slightly damp, but definitely not flooded. I cleaned
the solder joints with electronic contact cleaner and the contacts on
the connector then allowed it to dry, but still no luck.
I guess my ecu could have coincidentally died while I was changing the
radiator, but I highly doubt it. The fact that there is no spark
coming from the coil means the problem is before the distributor,
which leaves the igniter.
So, does anyone have an igniter they would be willing to part with?
Part # on the igniter is 89620-12270. Part # on the igniter and coil
assembly is 19070-15120. FYI, this igniter and coil were also used on
88-89 V6 4runners.
Or if anyone has any other ideas/ suggestions, I'd love to hear them,
but I'm pretty sure it is the igniter.
