View Full Version : 1992 GT problem

06-18-2008, 02:38 AM
My friend Ryan bought Tuner4Life's blue/gray hatch that made its appearance at this year's Dragon.

Last night Ryan was trying to hook up an MSD 6AL box. Strip the linsulation from the yellow wire on the top 4-pin connector on the top of the dizzy. He says the magnetic pick up for the dizzy? Yeah okay anyway. Then hooked up to the battery, and then the coil, 12V ref. Took it out and tried to start the car but it would not start. Cranks but no go. NO SPARK.

Tried a different 174 ignitor and coil but that didn't work either.

Tuner4Life sold a lemon! Kidding, I have no idea what the problem is...

Ahem... :)


Yellow? I'm thinking he hooked up the wrong wire. MSD has the full manuals on their website, I'll take a look at the diagrams for the AL in a little while, but I don't think it's any different from the A.

Did he get the tach adapter? The fuel injection won't trigger without it.

Yep, same wiring on the 6AL.

He's trying to revert it back to stock now, and it still won't catch. No spark. He's replaced the coil on the dizzy, and the ignitor. I already had him reset the ECU on the offchance that would do anything.

I'm kindof lost at this point, myself. I told him to try to get ahold of an entirely different distributor, but i'm not even sure that it would do anything.

Aaron, tell him to check all his fuses up there in that box by the battery.

Make sure to check the 7.5amp IGN fuse, too. It's in the kick panel, should be the first fuse in the block of six blade fuses on the 5th gen. That one's linked to the big 30amp IGN fuse next to the battery.

I called it. Was the ECU fuse.

STFU Ryan. You'se a ho.

Set your calender for August 15-17th. You're coming down to Indy and we're having special olympics drag races between the two 1992s.
