What would you like to do?
Instead of using a distributor to determine when each cylinder fires, the car's ECU uses camshaft and crankshaft position sensors, along with MAP/MAF and throttle position sensors to determine the optimum time to fire each cylinder for the most power/lowest emissions. As opposed to fixed advance (vacuum or centrifugal) employed in distributors. Transistor Controlled Ignition is commonly referred to as Coil On Plug (COP), Transistor Controlled Ignition is just marketing bumpf to make it sound awesome.

Answer the ignition control module is operated by the pcm,the pcm tells the ignition control module when to energize the coils to enable spark
Answer most likely it will be on the drivers side right up against the fire wall
The "brain" of the ignition system, the Ignition control module controls the ignition timing and strength, as directed by the main computer. It can be located in a varie…ty of places, but it can normally be found underneath the hood.
It sends the proper signal to the ecu to allow certain curcuits to close to allow power to the acc, on and run positions with the key.
That depends on the car. Most are under the hood in a electronics module box.
a control unit works by this other thing that makes it work but it also saves things.
Remove 2 bolts. LOL mine is located on the throttle body
Constant voltage delivery Eliminate the need for periodic replacement of points and condensor
Yes the ignition control module is a part of the distributor or d.i.s system intruduced in the late 70's by some manufactuers.
for a BJT to amplify we give input signal if suppose we use BJT in CE configuration input is given at Emitter-Base junction and output is taken at Collector base junctio…n the input voltage increases or decreases the forward bias of the E-B junction affecting a change in the base current and we know that collector current is a function of base current collector current also varies so by selectively changing the base current we can effectively change the collector current
It may be possible for an auto parts store to test it for you ( depending on type of vehicle). Call around and tell them the make and model of your vehicle. You will have to r…emove it ( disconnect your battery first ) and take it to them.
It sends a power to the starter relay/solenoid to engauge the starter. Know that the ignition switch is not what you put the key in and turn. That is the lock assembly. The ig…nition switch is located lower down on the steering column.
The control module is located under the hood, sometimes inside distributor,or mounted on outside of distributor, or as a distibutor-less module with coil packs mounted on top …or on passengerside fender behind headlight area. All depends on make of vehicle.
more accurate spark timing and combustion
theres a fuse when you light a candle
They are both used to play the flute
