How to properly test a FIAT Spider ignition pickup.
Having electronic ignition problems and trying to determine which component needs to be replaced? Testing the pickup is quick and easy.
Find the lead coming from the distributor and follow it over to the module mounted behind the coil. Unplug the lead from the module.
Using a multi-meter insert probes, one in each connector from the pickup.
Be sure your meter is set on ohms. If you have a reading of 700 to 800 ohms your pickup is good.
