Replacement Ignition Module Information
Choose from top brands including: Bosch, Delphi, Genuine, Intermotor and Original Equipment.
The ignition module is the part of the ignition system that regulates the ignition coil. (The ignition coil steps up the voltage from the battery so that the voltage is powerful enough to feed the engine's sparkplugs.) The ignition module turns the ignition coil on and off as necessary, so that the spark plugs fire at the correct time. The timing of the spark plugs' firing is critical, because they are what ignite the fuel in the engine and make the engine run. Ignition modules are an improvement to the original points ignition systems, because they rely on electronic timing whereas the points relied on mechanical movement. This is the automotive equivalent of moving from a mechanical clock to a digital clock; the added precision means better efficiency and fewer tune-ups to the ignition system. In older models, the ignition module was connected to the distributor and coil pack. Newer-model cars, which have fully computerized ignition systems, generally incorporate the ignition module and the ignition coil into one package. A failing ignition module can cause trouble starting, an overheating ignition coil, or stalling while driving. It can also cause the engine to lose power or hesitate. To troubleshoot the ignition module, examine it for overheating while the engine is started. Also examine all wire connections to the module to see if they are broken or worn. This can be a sign that the module has been vibrating too much, so try to seat it more firmly in its place. If the module is broken, take the vehicle to a reputable mechanic. Checking the ignition module and surrounding wiring can be dangerous, because the system is tied into the vehicle's battery. Be sure to have the wiring around the module checked out as well as the module itself; replacing the wires is usually cheaper than replacing the ignition module itself.
Part of the work of a well-functioning Bosch Ignition Module is to monitor and control engine advance and retard.
Your Delphi Ignition Module is the main electronic controller for the car's ignition system which uses signals from sensors in the distributor.
