2010 CDI wild green wire?

Post by Ratpatrol » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:15 pm

While troubleshooting an intermittent short on my 2010 Taiga (gear-up), I came across a green wire with no apparent purpose that has been spliced in at the connector between the sensor on the block and the green wire leading to the leading to the CDI. It was in the headlamp shell and zip tied so it went there.

I replaced the key switch and it ran fine, did a few more checks and now it runs like crap. A sniff test on the sealed Ducati CDI 406020 says burnt electrics inside. The 2010 diagram from the IMZ site doesn't explain much about the CDI, yellow and brown feeding the CDI and and green, red and black going to the sensor?

If that is the case, the wires all have continuity from the sensor, why was a wire soldered onto the connector between CDI and sensor? Some external test?

Thanks for your ideas.

The green wire on the hall effect sensor is the OUT signal. Maybe it was going to be used for the signal wire to a tachometer.

Just to finish the conversation about wire colors... on the hall effect sensor the red wire is Vcc or power supply. The black wire is ground.

Best,
