Hi everybody,
I have my FJ40 apart for painting. I removed the front clip and now I can't start the engine. I have power to the coil but no spark. I noticed the coil ignition igniter shell is charged, so I'm guessing there might be a short somewhere. Is there any reason I can't just bypass the igniter rather than replace it?
