the engine won't run if it is completely bad. you won't have spark. if it is just starting to go bad it might run good for days or weeks but can cut out at any time and the engine will die. it might restart right away or you might get it to start after some time. if you are getting intermittant ignition problems it is a good idea to get it replaced. carry a spare with you too so you won't be stranded in the future.
An electrical short or grounding of the module is one of the leading causes of module failure.
Maybe the igniton control module or the ignition module are making bad contact.
bad ignition coil, bad plugs. bad plug wires, bad ignition control module........
It could either be a bad ignition coil, a bad ignition rotor, a bad ignition cap, a bad ignition control module (if equipped), or a bad coil to cap wire.
== answer== Could be a bad ignition control module or coil,points if equiped,cap,or rotor,bad ignition switch.
your control module did go out.
Crank sensor has failed,Ignition control module (ICM) has failed,Bad ignition coil pack,
Yes, My ignition module was bad, I experienced intermittent stalling. My mechanic replaced and it stopped.
Probably a bad ignition control module..Autozone for $105-$160..
dead battery, or a bad ignition control module inside the distribureator.
Yes it could, along with many other things.
yes once the ignition control module heats up it would cause the vehicle to stall. usually after it cools down the vehicle will restart again.
Many autopart stores have a machine to test it. The machines use a universal adapter to hook into the ignition control module. The ignition control module is in the distributor. If you mean the part that contains the ignition coil, when mine went bad I probed it with an ohmeter and then asked the parts store if I could test the resistances in a new coil before I bought it. Since the resistances of certain terminals weren't even close, I knew I had a bad coil.
Bad coil , blown fuse, bad spark control module , bad cam/crank sensors to start with
have your ignition control module tested.(heat test) sometimes when the ignition control module goes bad , no starting/hard starting when vehicle is hot is a common symptom.follow up questionwhich is more likely the ignition control module or crank shaft rotation sensor and why?
A bad ignition module will cause a no start situation in a vehicle because the needed spark is not created. It is responsible for telling the distributor when to fire.
bad pick up or bad ignition module
It could be the wire, or bad ignition coil or just your plug are not gapped. The worst case is that the ignition control module is bad, but they are all easy to change
Ignition coils can go bad for several reasons. Age, water, bad distributor coil, ac voltage spike from a bad alternator. Some aftermarket coils go bad due to less than factory build specs.
Possible reasons why you have no spark: Bad ignition module Bad pickup coil Bad engine control module Wiring issues
It does not have one. It don't even have a distributor in it. You either have a bad cam sensor or crank sensor if it's not firing.
Ignition module bad.
If you can start the engine when cold, but it sputters and stalls when it's warm, then you most likely have a bad ICM. When you crank the engine, if you have tachometer movement, then the module is good, if there's no tach movement while cranking then the module is bad. The tachometer gets the signal from the module, so if the tach works, then the module is good.
Bad Starter. Bad Starter Relay. Bad Ignition Switch. Bad Ignition Module. Improper Ground.
