    It's common practice to use a diode to (rapidly) dissipate the voltage induced in a coil when the flux field collapses.

    If you can read a schematic diagram, I can show you how Cadillac did that on your '99 Eldo.

    I am actually asking on behalf of my grandfather. He can read a schematic so if you could post or send the information that would be great.
    Thank You

    Photobucket is misbehaving and this site imposes restrictions on attachment file size that I don't care to deal with.

    Send me a private message that includes your email address and I will respond with the schematic.
