Attached is a schematic for 1985 D / W 150 ignition and starter relay wiring. Hopefully the wiring colors are correct. Find the ignition ballast resistor on your vehicle and see if wiring colors match. You should be able to match up circuit paths with existing vehicle wiring against this aftermarket igntion system schematic.. . . . I'm going to install this kit on my 1985 Dodge b150. I'm not that great at this stuff. My question is- how exactly do I wire the "start" and "run" to the ballast resistor? . . .
This should not happen. This tells you that you removed a short circuit by unplugging the downstream end of the resistor. Something is wired wrong, or has failed.The voltage on the feed side of the balust resistor is 11 volts with the key on run position. The voltage on the terminal opposite the feed terminal (it is a two prong ballast resistor) is one volt with key on run position. Therefore the voltage to the coil with the key on run position is one volt. Is this not correct?
I get 11 volts on both terminals of the ballast resistor if I disconnect the wire going from the coil to the ballast resistor.
