What is Transistor Controlled Ignition?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

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.

How do you connect the transistorized ignition to the spark plugs in a 1998 Peugeot 106?

Typical of most newer engines, the coil either is used to fire two plugs simutaneously, or each plug will have it's own coil. We will try the first. A four cylinder engine has a typical firing order of 1342. If you split the running mates you end up with 14,& 32. The engine will have two coils, each (MORE)

What is a ignition control module?

Answer . \nthe ignition control module is operated by the pcm,the pcm tells the ignition control module when to energize the coils to enable spark

Where is the ignition control module on a 1997 Sonata?

Answer Location of Ignition Control Modu . \nRegarding a model 1997,2 liter sonata, there is not an ignition control module as such.\nIgnition control comes from the ECM (ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT) through the Ignition Power \nTransistor (often called Igniter) and then to the Ignition coil.I do not (MORE)

What does the ignition control module in a 1995 Astro do?

Answer . It takes the place of the 'points' that used to be in the distributor, collapsing the coil's field at a precise time, dissipating voltage from the coil to the spark plugs and firing the air fuel mixture in the engine's cmbustion chambers.

What is a transistor?

A transistor is an electronic component known as a semiconductor.The first practical transistor was invented in 1947 and became analternative to vacuum tubes (valves) and relays. Early transistorswere made with germanium but silicon is used almost universally insemiconductor manufacturing. A single (MORE)

What are transistors?

Answer Transistors are semiconductor devices which can be used as switches (to turn on and off an electrical signal or current path) and also as a signal amplifier in a circuit. There are two broad types of transistors BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) and FET (Field Effect Transistors). - Neer (MORE)

How do you check a ignition control module on 91 mercury capri?

You may be out of luck with this check. I have a 93 with a non-turbo 1.6 and due to a non-start senario I knew the ign. module was the culprit. Being a master Ford/GM tech. and former automotive parts sales man at a local NAPA store, I took the unit out and took to every parts store around as well a (MORE)

Where is the ignition control module located on a 95 eclipse GS?

Pulley side of engine, mounted to the firewall side, below the coil packs held on with 3 6x1.0 bolts, 10 mm head. Premier Automotive Solutions . that is correct for 1989-94 talon/eclipse/laser with the 4g63 Turbo and non turbo . for a 1995 GS its inside the Engine Control Module and that is the (MORE)

What does a control module-ignition do?

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 variety of places, but it can normally be found underneath the hood.

What is transistorized?

A device such as a radio can be said to be transistorized when earlier designs are replaced by designs in which transistors replace vacuum tubes.

Where is the ignition control module in 94 Dodge Intrepid?

Answer: . The 1994 Dodge Intrepids (3.3 and 3.5L engines) don't have a separate ignition module. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the functions of an ignition module. The PCM is located under the hood on the engine. It's held in place by a stud bolt and push pin. There's a "60-pin" co (MORE)

How do you change a ignition control module on a 2.5L fiero?

The ignition control module on a 2.5L Fiero is changed by removingthe lower steering column panel, disconnecting the wiring harness,and unbolting the module. A new module is then bolted in and thewires reattached. I owned one of these and never saw a ignition box of any kind inthis location. The 19 (MORE)

Where is the ignition control on a 1973 450sl?

I have a 1975 450Sl and the ICU is located on the driver's side, in the front wheel well on the fender just below the coil. It's a cast aluminum looking box. Otherwise, running from your distributor is a covered wire that holds two internal wires (I think two)... trace that back as it will lead you (MORE)

What is does a transistor do?

It is basically an electronic "thing" that has three terminals. Lets say E (emitter), B (base) and C (collector). Lets say we connect C to positive of a battery and E to negative (or ground). As long as we keep some current at B , we'll have current flowing from C to E . Basically it (MORE)

What does a transistor do?

Depending on how the transistor is biased and various othercircuits connected to it, a transistor acts as an amplifier and/orswitch. When acting as an amplifier the circuit containing the transistorcan do things like transmit or receive radio signals, performanalog mathematical calculations, generat (MORE)

How can you tell if the ignition control module is bad?

You can do it yourself by going to troubleshootmyvehicle.com(the author is correct) or take it to oreilly auto parts or autozone. They both will test it for you...Take it to both places..a second opinion never hurts...good luck....

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 junction the input voltage increases or decreases the forward bias of the E-B junction affecting a change in the base current and we know (MORE)

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 remove it ( disconnect your battery first ) and take it to them.

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 ignition switch is located lower down on the steering column.

Where is the ignition control module located on a 1992 Chevy Berretta?

ignition module is located under the distributor, where the spark plugs come out to go to the spark plugs, remove 6 bolts that hold the 3 capped distributor on, unplug the wires from both ends of module, 3 plugs, lift module out, nothing holds it in after distributor is removed, plug new module in, (MORE)

Is the power transistor unit control the speed of the car of airlady 300zx?

No. think of the transistor as the ignition coil on conventional ignition systems. It's what sends the spark to the spark plugs. The only thing really controling the speed is you... These cars tack really high. And you don't really have to worry about top end because you'll never really get a chance (MORE)

What causes the ignition control module to go out?

1) Voltage overload due to bad ground connections, or possibly other open or short connections. 2) Heat. Lack of proper heat sink compound (when mounting certain types) or lack of proper ventilation. 3) poor quality replacement parts.

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 or on passengerside fender behind headlight area. All depends on make of vehicle.

Which terminal represents the control input of a bipolar transistor?

base Umm.... Device current results from forward biasing of the emitter-base junction. Thus you can: 1. hold the emitter constant and apply control to the base (most common), or 2. hold the base constant and apply control to the emitter (common/grounded base circuit, mostly used at hig (MORE)
