PRESTART CHECK LIST

• The only wires connected to the coil terminals are the MSD Orange to coil positive and Black to

coil negative.

• The small Red wire of the MSD is connected to a switched 12 volt source.

• The MSD power leads are connected directly to the battery positive and negative terminals.

• The battery is connected and fully charged if not using an alternator.

• The engine is equipped with at least one ground strap to the chassis.

• If running a 4 or 6-cylinder, the cylinder count must be modified in the Pro-Data+ Software. Default

is 8-cylinder.

LED

The LED on the side of the MSD monitors several operating conditions of the MSD. If the LED indicates

that there is a problem with the ignition system, follow the steps through the Troubleshooting section.

The LED will appear to be on steady at above idle speeds when everything is functioning properly.

• When 12 volts are applied to the small Red wire, the LED will turn on to indicate power.

• When cranking or running, the LED will blink for each trigger signal.

• Code 2 will flash for low battery voltage.

• Code 3 will flash for high battery voltage.

• Code 4 will flash for converter off (ignition problem).

WARNING: The MSD 6-Series Ignitions are capacitive discharge ignitions. High voltage is present

at the coil primary terminals. Do not touch the coil or connect test equipment to the

terminals.
