I have an SC400 manual. I'm sure it shares the same code...
I also see other areas with the same code such as:
Diag. Code 14 = Water Temperature Sensor Circuit.
Problem: Open or short in water temperature sensor circuit.
Trouble Area: Water temparature sensor, Harness or connector between water temperature sensor and A/C control assembly, A/C Control assembly.
Also another one in SRS Airbag
Code 14 = Open in squib circuit
Trouble Area: Steering wheel pad (squib), Spiral cable, Center airbag sensor assembly, wire harness. (Airbag warning light = ON)
Found your code (Check engine light code = 14)
Circuit = Ignition No.1 Signal
Diagnostic Code Detecting Condition = No IGF1 signal to ECU for 8-11 consecutive IGT1 signal.
Code No. 14
Fail-Safe Operation = Fuel Cut
Fail-Safe Deactivation Conditions: 1 IGF1 detected in consecutive 8 ignitions.
Ok im lost so i know there are 2 coils one on top off the engine the other one on side next to battery. Is the coil one top off the engine #1 coil and the one on the side is #2 coil. Could my problem be just a bad coil once it gets hot it stops working or is it igniter and where would that be located and is there two igniters like two coils. I read the diag. and im kinda lost now it looks to be like a bad #1 coil or bad #1 igniter so where do i go from here bc i can replace d coil but i dont no where igniter is located at help.
So far that's some really good info. Here's some more:
So as we already said code 14 is your ignition signal note making to the cpu. This signal is what tells the CPU a spark has occured. In this case, it is for igniter #1. If the computer doesn't get this signal, then the injectors won't pulse either. It has to happen 8 times in a row for the code 14 to set. Both igniters are located by the passenger fender.
They get their circuit completed through their ground to the body, so make sure you fasten them securely to the vehicle when you test them out.
There are some tests to do to backprobe the igniter and look through a labscope to see a sawtooth, but let's be honest here...you don't have such toys. It can be the igniter #1, the harness to it, the ground, or the computer itself has lost its ability to push out a 5v reference signal (not likely.)
