The ignition module requires approx 3-4 amps of power from the IGNITION switch to create the dwell signal to the coils. OF course the crankshaft sensor must create an AC waveform to the ignition module as well.

Just wanted to thank you for the reply. I rechecked my crank sensor pattern and it was fine. then I tapped in to the power feed line before the ezl unit and it would have 12v unplugged.
Then when I plugged it in it would dropped to 4v. Anyways I
I found the voltage drop across the ignitoin switch. I bypassed the switch with 12v and it started. the new switch will be here tomrow.

You've probably found the best place for info right here . Seeing as how you are a tech you maybe should email Benzmac and get set up as a "tech". Also, don't forget to share your experiences with others as you can. I may have a Honda question every now and then.
