I wondered the same thing on my 1992 4 cylinder.. if there was any form of sensor besides just the computer telling spark plug 1-fire now or 2-fire now,ect. I think if you have the electronic ignition like I have its just the computer.. but im not certain of this.

How do you get center of ignition on Pontiac Bonneville?

I think you are trying to time the ignition to top dead center. If that is the case the crank position sensor tells the computer when to fire the spark plugs. This sensor gets pulsed by the gear on the crankshaft and depending on where this gear is at in its rotation the crank position sensor lets the computer know where the pistons are at in the cylinder. So the whole thing is computer controlled and a timing light is not used. Of course I'm assuming your car is an OBDII model.
