Where the cable enters the coil, it arcs like crazy. I haven't fixed it yet. Don't know how. Just replace the cable?
My 2001 Toyota Tacoma will start but won't stay on I think it's the wire harness rubbing against ignition coil
My car started and then the starter tried to turn over a second time while it was running. I turned it of and disconnected the battery. when I reconnected it the car would not start. That was when I started to take it apart noticed the wiring harness was being rubbed. and wires where cut. I reconnected, insulated, and moved the wiring harness to a better spot.
mine is stalling as well due to wiring harness problems. it's frustrating
