TRX300 Deer Getter

1993 Honda TRX300 No Spark

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

First time poster here.  I have a '93 TRX300 with no spark.  Measuring 100 volts pulsing at the coil then declining down to 90, 80, 70, 60 and so on.  I assume it's the coil.  If there's voltage to the coil then everything else should be in working order, right?

Thanks for your help,

Deer Getter

Sounds like it could be the coil. They are cheap on Amazon, I would try and swap it out to see.

I haven't checked anything upstream of the coil because i'm getting voltage to the coil.  I just don't have a repair manual so I don't know what voltage i should expect.  I ordered a coil from amazon so if that doesn't work i'll start more diagnosis.

I had a no spark issue and it ended up being a R/B wire that was not connected on the main harness - if you've shaken down everything else already might want to look for wiring gremlins.

I just fixed my 1993 Honda 300fw four trax.    Replaced the  i c m  ECM or what ever it is called.  Computer module.   Unit rides in a little harness right in front of the steering column.   Remove front cowling and replace  Very easy to do.   Was getting no spark.   Replace the module and bingo.  Cranked right up.

Sweet, appreciate the insight.  I have a coil i'm going to try today, if that doesn't work i'll move to the ECM.

Good call, there's always a chance Stuart Little got in there for a midnight snack...I'm hoping a new coil works for me, if not i'll download the service manual and move upstream to the computers and control modules.

I'm have the same issue so thanks for help. I'll look for wires that are chew on first.

      Well got another one for the elders here. I recently picked up a Honda Trx 250
      in pretty rough shape. Brought it home cleaned it up if thats possible. Motor was
      seized, Pretty bad shape. I unseized the motor, got it to spin over, Got it to crank on its
      own with the start button. Got neutral light, but no spark. Fuses good wiring is old but looks
      intact. Went to check cdi box, here is where the problem lies, I dont know the year. The last one 
      was under the plastic on the crossmember, this one has none. Looks like a  sticker was there at one time. 
      I checked the left side of frame by foot peg and nothing. Cant find any vin number. I need to know the year
      to try to locate a cdi. One clue is this one appears to have 2 cdi boxes. One is a little larger than the other but
      plugs look identical to eachother. One has green connectors and the other has white connectors. Is this only
      on certain year model that has duel cdi boxes? I also need a download for a trx 250 Im thinking its about a 1985 or 86
      but just a guess. Before changing i would like to check some voltages but need a manual for this. Any guess on how to 
      identify and or get a download for this one would be great. Wont let me post pics only .08 MB Down load available. Thanks in advance Az

      I have a 1996 Kawasaki Mojave KSF250. I have no manual on it and it has a no spark issue. If anyone could give me a hand with this or would possibly have a manual would appreciate it.

      I have a 99 250 Quadrunner. Currently has no spark. It would run for 5 minutes, then shut off. After it cooled down about 20-30 minutes, it would start again. I ordered a new stator and found the old one was damaged (copper windings broken)  I installed the new stator, filled with oil and now it has no spark. Any assistance would be helpful

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      I’m working on a Kawasaki Bayou KLF400 for a family member that doesn’t have spark. I’ve already replace the ignition switch and the stator which were defective. The stator had a melted connector and one of the phase had low resistance and low VAC output. 
      What I’ve figured out so far is that I’m not getting 12V to the ignition coil when I turn the key to the ON position. From what I understand, the 12V should come from the CDI. I’ve resistance tested both wires going from the CDI to the ignition coil (Green/white and black/yellow). They are fine. The only 12V coming from the ECU is on the yellow/red wire.
      I don’t have the wiring diagram for the 400 but I’m working with the one for the Bayou 300 which looks pretty similar except for the wire color between the CDI and ignition coil. On the 300 diagram, the yellow/red wire goes to the ignition coil, not the black/yellow… All the other wires color match except for this one. Not sure if that’s normal?
      Thanks!
