Ignition Issue_Camry SXV20R_5S-FE


Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can assist me.

Model:Camry SXV20R

Engine: 5S-FE (4 cyl)

Prod.Date 12/00

Current KMS: 59,000

Issue: Number 2 cylinder is not firing.

Diagnostic procedure:

Timing light on all HT leads indicated No 2 not firing.

Checked spark plugs, cleaned a swapped No2 plug with other.

Result: Failed (No2 no spark)

Checked HT leads, all resistance within specifications.

Changed No 2 lead.

Result: Failed (No2 no spark)

Changed ignition coil.Swapped (#1) 1/4 and (#2) 2/3 since they are both the same.

If ignition coil was faulty, when swapped over, should have No4 cyl not firing.

Result: Failed (No2 no spark)

Now I presume that I've eliminated any problem between spark plug and ignition coil. So where to now.

Can I test the coil plug (4 terminals) for continuity or voltage.

Any help from the forum would be most welcomed.

Thanks Trentmeyer

To assist me, where is the ECU located and which terminals are involved ? I presume that at the coil end there is a Neg(-) terminal and a terminal where the coil get it ignition pulse from the ECU , paired for each cylinder.

The coil plug has power. Terminal #1 (Grnd) #2 (Ignition) #3 (Ignition Feedback) #4 (Positive+)

Next is locate the corresponding terminals IG and IGF on ECU for continuity.

Trent, a quick check on the net says the ECU located behind glove box.Hoping wire colours correspond.

Yes, the ECU is behind the glovebox, I don't have and SXV20 wiring diagram, so can not help with ECU pin outs, wire colours are generally the same. When you do a continuity test from the coil to the ECU, there should be at least one corresponding wire that will buzz.
