"its on the right side of the engine when you are facing it. on top of the wheel well, connected by a wire that looks like a spark bug wire to the distributor cap."

This answer is not correct. This answer is correct if the question was "where is my ignition coil?" The coil is exactly as this answer indicates, but the Ignition Control Module (at least on my 1988 Ranger 4wd 4cyl 2.3) is attached to the base of the distributor cap. It is easily identifiable because it is hooked to a wire harness - the only one hooked to the Distro Cap Base. It can be removed with 2 screws but you will need a very narrow 7/32" nut driver to get the hex screws out. The process, with the right tool, should take less than 10 minutes. I suggest replacing the hex screws with Phillips head screws for ease of re-attaching and possible removal at a later time should the ICM need ti be replaced again.

1988 ford ranger 2.9 L no spark still have power steering electronics just quit running changed coil and module - could it be the pick up distributor or timing chain?

I have an 89 Ranger with the 2.9L, was driving on the highway and it just quit. I thought it was probably the timing chain, had it towed to a shop and he checked fuel pressure which was normal, found no spark condition. He tested the ignition coil, pickup coil, module and wiring for faults. Failure traced to the ignition control module. He also replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and coil wire. If you have a no spark condition I would recheck all these because I think if it is a broken timing chain you would still have spark. The ignition control module is at the base of the distributor cap. Assuming your ignition coil and ignition control module are good, try the pickup coil. Stay with the ignition system until you get spark. i have the same problem with my 88 ranger changed distributor, rotor button, ignition coil, and tfi module, still no spark. If it is the timing chain it will not spark.
