How To Test An Ignition Coil With A Multimeter?

In this article, I would like to share my experience with a coil that I decided to test with a multimeter. This is one coil I never used before but had to be checked. A fuel pump does not work well without a current going through it. As one of the most important components in the ignition process, you want to know for sure whether the problems you are having when starting your car are due to the coil or something else. We will show you how to test the primary and secondary windings of the ignition coils using a multimeter.

How will you test a spark plug with a multimeter?

  1. Connect the spark plug electrodes to the multimeter probes appropriately.

How to test a 2cv ignition coil?

All you have to do is connect the – (minus) coil to the – battery, connect a spark plug to one of the outputs and rest its base on a clean metal part. Then connect a wire to the (plus) battery and let it touch the coil with small strokes. If the coil is ok, a spark will occur at the spark plug!

How to test the coil of a solenoid valve?

Re: test solenoid valve

If in BOTH cases the solenoid valve remains OPEN, it means that it is at a minimum, stuck “open” or “dead”. If ohmeter is available, you can check the condition of the coil. The check can be done without an ohmeter: a battery and a flashlight bulb.

How to test candles?

If you have a multimeter, you can measure the resistance of your glow plugs: Connect the positive terminal (red wire) to the top of the spark plug, and the negative terminal (black wire) to the base of the spark plug. The resistance measured in ohms (Ω) must be the same on all spark plugs.
