Electronic Ignition

Recommended Posts

Magnetronic  MTK001 KIT.

Hi 

I would like to fit this to my 2 Ltr  MK5.

It runs a ballast  ignition  coil (Bosch)

Can any body advise:

Where the ballast resistor is and what it looks like?

Where to take the 12v live feed from on ignition switch side of the ballast resistor?

 

Thanks 

Nigel

Seem to recall the ballast is in the loom behind the rad thick grey wire, could be wrong. have you got two wires going to + side of coil ?

There is this thick grey wire. At the  end are 2 yellow and black wires going into the loom. A similar yellow and black wire is connected to the +'ve side of coil.

The two yell and black wires, I would check if one is live on starting and the other live when running. If my thinking is correct the power should swop between the two from start and run. If that's the case then join those two wires together and run one wire to + on coil that should give you 12v on both ign switch positions. Save going back through the bulkhead with a new wire to switch.
