Default 295 intermittent spark

When I engage the starter I get one spark across the plugs, then nothing. Pulsar measures good according to the manual. Coil new and the Igniter.

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken

Sounds like a bad ignitor. Did you buy a cheap one ?

Be sure to remove and clean ALL of your ground attatching points, wires and ground stud over by the solenoid as well, Ezgo has a tendency to corrode there and cause a spark loss.
But, like trig says, Interweb cart electronics are junk, check your grounds and reinstall your OEM parts, but if you have to buy anything, unfortunately, OEM is the way to a long running cart.

Also if you have disconnected the battery recently, Check you have it connected the right way (negative to ground ) easy mistake to make and can cause your symptoms.

What I have found when someone installs the battery incorrect it will spark one time just as you let off the pedal. I think his is sparking the one time when you first hit the pedal ? which normally is a bad ignitor.

I also will mention to Kenlhlp that some dealers are now selling aftermarket ignitors.
The marking on an OEM ignitor is Kokusan Denki Made in Japan.
Check plastic connection where pulser coil plugs in good and also like crash12888 said the grounds. Wiggle the pulser connection while checking for fire.
I assume we are talking about the Pre-Mci engine also ? because the dealer I buy from no longer has the ignitor . Same with ezgo in Augusta

Good catch Trig, I should have noticed that.

Still having problems. Found the two pin pulsar plug was bad and eliminated it. I have replaced all the grounds and cleaned all connections. Rebuilt the original carburetor.

I have good spark now. It tries to start. Fires sporadically with the throttle at minimum. Eventually the engine starts. When running it has power, idles and accelerates fine. If I come to complete stop, then try going again the engine is back to sporadic firing, no go.

Just at a loss what could be wrong.
