Electronic Ignition

Asked by Aug 29, 2009 at 02:44 PM about the 1970 Dodge Dart

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just converted my dart to an electronic ignition but i am having a bit of a problem. after the engine is started i noticed that my starter keeps running. I found out that if I disconnect a wire after the engine is running my starter will stop running, and the motor will run great. the wire that I disconnected is the new wire that is connecting the coil and the balist resistor, and it is the wire that also needs to be connected to the start wire.  Any ideas because im tapped out.

1 Answer

Does it have a starter relay switch on the firewall or fenderwell?? Make sure you don't have your wires switched..the keyswitch wire on the starter make sure it's on the right side of the starter..if it has two wires..switch them..see what happens
