Testing Universal Ignition Module

Learn how to test a universal ignition module to determine whether it is in need of replacement.

Tools/Parts:



Step 1

Set the multimeter to the 20k ohms setting. Place the red and black probes at opposite ends of the ignition module.

Step 2

A reading of 4.54 kOhms indicates an as new ignition module. As the reading increases your spark’s power may decrease as an estimate resistances above 6-8K Ohms┬ámay cause failure of the spark needed to start a mower.

If resistance is infinite your module is damaged and will need to be replaced.
