Pulse Generator Resistance

Does anyone know what the spec Ohms is for the pulse generator. I didnt see it in the manual. Thanks

The pulse generator is not real. That's something they made up for that time travel movie about the kid in the DeLorean. Oh, wait, that was the flux capacitor. Never mind.

the way to check the pulse gen is turn the engine over and measure the voltage it generates, it is in fact a small generator that outputs a sine wave. if you have a fluke 87 or an o-scope you can check it, if you have a multimeter that does not store max and min voltage values with at least a 1 millisecond capture rate you cannot check it. your regular meter will just read a near zero value since it is averaging.

book says min peak voltage is 0.7 volts.

i checked mine recently with a fluke 87, when cold it was +3.4 volts to -3.4., when hot it is was at +/- 2.5 volts, a good signal for the ICM.

the impedance may be one way to check it, but the book says nothing about that value.
