2003 3010 Mule No spark

Just picked up a 3010 Mule with no spark, entire ignition system has been replaced (igniter, coils and pulse coil). All wiring has been rung out and checks ok. Also replaced fuel pump and fuel pump relay. What am I missing?????

Look at your wiring diagram. Likely find a ground issue, or connection issue assuming all the components were replaced by new components and not used ones.

Also have a look at the flywheel key. Seen a few sheared from I assume hydraulically locked cylinders-usually from carb overflowing.

Wiring harness has been unwrapped and thoroughly checked from engine to fuse box. All wires rung out, everything tests fine. Flywheel was pulled, all ok. I have 4.5 peak volts from pulse coil at the igniter when engine is cranking. 12 volts to brown wire at igniter and good ground at igniter. 12 volts to coils but blue and white wire never go to ground (0 peak volts across coils). I have tried 2 igniters ( 1 new,1 used). Currently I'm looking for another mule in this area to test igniters. I'm open to any other ideas.

Thanks
Pete

Does your ignitor have a grey wire going to it?

Yes, but I see on the wiring diagram that it is only used on European models. Gray wire goes to start switch plug but no corresponding wire to start switch.

Do you have a meter and know how to use it?

No meter, we can help there too.

OK:

1. Set meter to volts.
2. On ignitor, push red meter lead down beside grey wire to make contact with pin.
3. Black meter lead to battery ground.
4. Key on, take reading.

Post back with reading.
