if its 100% electric i wouldnt care if it came with free boobs, i want......free
ok sooo......back to spark
have you checked the distributor, are the wires ok? is it a hall effect or a points type?
most likely a Points type? 77?? "oh wait hes got an 1.8gti" nevermind throw that out the window
you need the "ICU" in the rain tray to control spark bro......thats what it does "ignition control unit"
it has a metal "heatsink" attached to it and some grounding straps
here is a brand new one on rockauto...
they arent really too expensive new and should generally rarely fail
otherwise youre running a K-Jetronic CIS? ok so where is your ECU for that? passenger side inner door under the dash?
checked your Ignition coil wiring?
ok hey usually posting pictures of the engine bay, the hack job, and the items you replaced or trashed or swapped in usually is a HUGE help, we are visual learners right?
therefore i suggest pictures of engine bay
