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.

Is there an ignition control module?

  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.

Why transistor is called a current controlled device?

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

How do you check the ignition control module?

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

Does the ignition switch control the starter?

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

Where is ignition controls module?

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
