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.

Where is ignition control module for 1990 suburban?

If you have a 350 with HEI (electronic ignition), it will be under the distributor cap, under the rotor, bolted with two small bolts to the landing of the distributor.  

What does a transistor do?

Depending on how the transistor is biased and various other  circuits connected to it, a transistor acts as an amplifier and/or  switch.   When acting as an amplifier th

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

What is a ignition control module?

  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

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 negat

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

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 ha

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,
