The Ignition Control Module on a 1996 Ford Thunderbird 4.6 is located inside the EFI or Electronic Fuel Injector. The EFI is the carburetor. Look for a cord that has a connector that resembles an HD Cable.

there is no ignition control module on the 1996 model its all through the PCM

Only the EEC-IV ignition systems ( 1991 to 1995) use an external ICM (ignition control module) . From 1996 on with the EEC-V system the ignition control module is incorperated into the power control module (PCM) mounted in your firewall on the passenger side.

The engine computer is the ignition module.

The 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse ignition module is located on the firewall in the engine compartment. The ignition module will be on the drivers side of the firewall.

From 1991 to 1995 with the EEC-IV system there is an external ignition control module mounted on the radiator support in front of the battery. Remove the battery in order to change the module. 1996 and newer with the EEC-V system, the ignition control module is incorperated into the powertrain control module (PCM) that is visible from the engine compartment, in the firewall, on the passenger side.

AnswerSince 1996, engine ignition control has been handled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).The PCM has direct control over the ignition coils / coilpack (or coil-on-plug on some engines) - so the need for a 'distributor' has gone away.Coilpacks cost about $75Sidebar: without a distributor, the engine timing is also totally handled by the PCM.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

In the distributor, buy a new one and read the instructions

its located on driver side head on top of block little black module with plugwire running out of it

On the 96 Tahoe, 5.7L V8 the ignition control module is on a plate in front of the distributor on the passenger side of the engine. It is next to the coil pack. Original Answer: It is in the dist. remove cap and you will see it.

there is no ignition control module the coils are controled by the ecm in my 96 cougar 4.6l i found it hidden behind the drivers side front turn signal look thru the small holes, you will see the fins on the module!

it should be located under the battery on the inside of the front fender.

Ignition system is controlled by Vehicle Control Module (VCM). The VCM monitors the information from various engine sensors, computes the desired spark timing and controls the dwell and firing of the ignition coil via an (IC) line to the ignition control module. Hope this helps.


It's called the EEC (Electronic Engine Control Module) or the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) It is located under the instrument panel on the floor tunnel ahead of the floor console. It has a ton of wires going into it.

If you remove the distributor cap, you will see it bolted on the base plate

Its part of the PCM, which is located on the passaenger side of the car inside underneath the glove compartment.

The CCRM is located in the engine compartment behind the passenger side headlight. Check just in front of the air filter housing.

The 1996 Ford E2 50 power control module can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard. The power control module will be above the accelerator pedal.
