first take off your plug wires there is a long bolt that goes through them inspect the bolts and if there is a lot of rust on them they need to be replaced or at least the rust cleaned off. this could be the problem itself as it could have a bad ground. also if you are getting an error code p0341 this could also be the problem. as well unbolt and remove the module and clean off any residue or rust on the back of it as well as where it mounts to the transmission. if this doesn't fix the problem your having with you spark plug wires disconnected from your coil pack, get a friend to turn the ignition and watch for spark between the towers on the coil pack the spark should be blue not yellow or orangeish. if there is no spark between one of the sets of towers switch the coils position on the module and repeat. if there is still no spark on the same side you need a new module if the spark switched sides with the coil you need a new coil. hope this helps. i might be able to answer any other questions

Purchase a new switch for your Saturn at your local auto parts store. Remove the switch from the box so you can familiarize yourself with the part and this will make this task so much easier when removing and installing the switch. Remove the 5 screws (7/32 socket) from the plastic trim under the steering column. There are 2 pieces a top and a bottom. Now remove the plastic trim ring from the ignition switch where the key goes in. The trim can now be removed from the column and set to the side. Put the key in the ignition and turn clockwise to the ACC setting. Locate the square push button release on the top right of cylinder towards the back of the switch housing (compare to the new one for reference). Push the button with a flat blade screwdriver (If the key is not in the ACC position the button will not depress) And pull out on the key, the cylinder should slide out with little effort. The new switch also has to have the key turned to the ACC setting to slide in properly. Inserting the new switch can be a tricking process so be patient and make sure everything is lined up correctly. Once installed rotate the key and make sure you have full movement. O k now you ready for the trim to be reinstalled. Good Job

How do you figure out what the problem would be starting a 1993 mercury cougar that does not want to start in the winter?

Try unpluging the Ignition control module while the key is in the on position. Wait until you here the relays click, then plug it back in, next do not shut the hood or door, try starting it. If it starts, then you either have a bad Ignition module, bad harness connector or a sticking relay. This is the problem I have on my 94, but it happens more when it is hot. I discvered this while searching the internet for my prolem. I saw this for both hot and cold conditions. It is call the famous Ford connector wiggle test. Good luck. If you find it to be something else, please respond back to this post as I have still to this day not figured out what the exact problem is. Still wiggling connector Run1

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

Follow these instructions at your own risk. If you do not feel comfortable performing a check or lack the knowledge to take necessary precautions please have repair performed by a professional. I am not sure what you mean by "still have power steering", if you have power steering I would think the engine is running. I will go on the assumption that the engine is not running. There are basically three parts involved to create the spark - the module, the pickup, and the coil. Since you have already changed the most failure prone part, let me give you some quick checks. 1. Remove the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine while watching to see if the rotor/shaft of the distributor is turning. If it is not turning the rollpin which holds the drive gear to the shaft may have broken, timing chain snapped, or a broken camshaft. If it is not turning, it is a small job to lift the driver's valve cover so you can see if the valve train is moving when the engine is cranked. 2. If the distributor is turning, using a testlight between ground and the negative side of the coil crank the engine while observing the testlight. Blinking light indicates the electronics are pulsing the primary side of the coil and if there is no spark it is likely the coil. You can force the coil to spark by grounding the negative side for a brief second while the key is on. The negative side is typically the one that only has one wire on the terminal. Each time you ground the coil it should spark. Only ground the coil for a second!! 3. If the testlight stays lit (it will dim slightly when cranking), the pickup is lilkely at fault. The pickup is difficult to test so it is best to eliminate the other components first. 4. Additional information can be found at http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/TFI_Diagnostic.html

How can you fix the tail lights and instriment panel lights on your 1995 Ford Ranger?

The most common causes of this problem you are having are a blown fuse; faulty headlight switch; or a short in trailer wiring. Check all fuses, look for damaged trailer wiring, and test the headlight switch. Correct any problems as needed. Sometimes a bad GEM module can cause this problem. If no other problems are found, consider the possibility of a faulty GEM module.

Best advice is to get the Harley Shop Manual for your particular year Sportster. They have a 3 page diagnostic chart in mine for 1998. Follow through the test procedures outlined to tell if the ignition module or a related part is bad. You may need to make a special wiring harness test cable to be able to check certain voltages while the module is connected.


How do you test a ignition module on 1992 Honda civic?

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.


Where is the ignition control module located on a 1992 Chevy S-10 Pickup?

The Distributer module on "92" S-10 Vin code "W" or "Z" is located on the distributer,you must remove the distributer cap to gain access to the ignition module. Once you have gained access to the ignition rotor it is always necessary to always test the module before replacing it.
