See "Related Questions" below for information about Ignition Control Modules on 1986-1995 Taurus/Sables.
On a 1996 Ford Taurus the ignition control module is part of the drivetrain control module. To change the ignition control module you have to change out the computer. It is located behind the motor on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Look for a screw holding in a wiring plug with a dozen or so wires. The drivetrain control module has a couple of nuts holding it in place and looks like a cdrom when removed. Good luck. John
"Ignition actuator" is not a standard term... But to try and help, there are a couple of possibilities:Ignition key cylinder - very common problem with the early 90's Taurus/Sables.Ignition control module - requires specialized tool to remove from the side of the distributor.Both of these are covered in the "Related Questions" below...
There is no longer an ignition "distributor" on today's engine.Electrical distribution is handled by the:Powertrain Control Module (PCM),camshaft position sensor (CPS)ignition coil that looks like a rectangular distributor. NOTE: 2000-2005 Duratec engines use Coil-on-Plug (COP) in lieu of a coilpackBy the way, there is also no longer an ignition control module - that job has been passed off to the PCM.The "How do you know which wire goes where on the ignition coil and spark plugs on a Taurus - Sable" question below introduces the basics of ignition distribution - hopefully it will help folks transition from the old arrangement to the new.
I just finished changing out one on my 1995 Ford Taurus GL Wagon with a 3.8 engine. I found it in the left side of the firewall. It's plugged into a receptacle there. I understand that was done because the modules previously had overheated when mounted on the side of the distributor. If yours is not on the firewall, it may be either on the distributor or on the wheel well.
