Replacement Ignition Cassette Information

Choose from top brands including: DelphiAC Delco

Ignition CassetteVehicles today, primarily of the Saab make, use direct ignition systems also with ignition coils that are formed into a whole assembly, which connects to the spark plugs directly. In order for your vehicle to be properly running in terms of ignition, the ignition cassette must be working efficiently. As with any other auto part, it can fault at one time or another. The important thing, though, is knowing how to test it to determine whether or not you need a replacement ignition cassette. If you need to test the ignition cassette, you will simply turn it over and place the plugs within the holes. You will then ground each plug to the negative terminal on the battery. You will watch the spark as you turn the ignition over. If the cassette is faulty, you will notice that one of the plugs will have either a weak spark or possibly no spark at all. Usually, and this is quite normal, there will be a "shower," so to speak, of sparks when you turn the ignition off. This is said to happen so that the plugs stay as clean as possible, which results in better, smoother starts for the vehicle. You may just need to replace the plugs in the ignition cassette rather than the entire ignition cassette. If this is the case, be sure to only use resistor plugs as non-resistor plugs will cause the ignition cassette to fail. If this happens, you'll be racking your brain trying to figure out what happened. You can replace the ignition cassette yourself if you know how; otherwise, you can have it replaced a local mechanic shop or dealership. Keep in mind if you are replacing the plugs or the entire cassette yourself, you should let the vehicle cool for at least a couple hours to ensure your own safety.

Ignition Cassette Information

Ignition Cassette

Ignition systems make sure your fuel burns properly. There's a lot that goes into this process, from precisely controlling timing to efficiently delivering electrical charges into your combustion chamber. Losing any component causes serious problems in how your engine operates. Your ignition cassette is a crucial part of this system, so replace it and get back on the road.

Your direct ignition cassette is the result of one of the more recent developments in ignition systems technology. These cassettes usually contain an independent coil for each cylinder. That's opposed to the older design: a single coil pumping out power that's divided off to each cylinder by a distributor. The ignition cassette layout makes it possible to use lower voltage coils and eliminate problematic wiring, among other advantages. Look for your ignition coil cassette located on your engine, directly contacting your spark plugs.

We're proud to have ignition cassettes by the best brands, including Delphi, Professional Parts Sweden and Beru. Every one of our millions of parts is covered by our 30-day return policy. Everything in our inventory is on sale for up to 80% off list, so find the best prices at Order now, and our sophisticated inventory system lets us ship out your purchase in less than two days.

What is an ignition cassette?

Each vehicle's ignition system is different, but they all have one thing in common. That's the primary function: to light up the flammable gasses inside your combustion chambers and provide motion for your pistons to power your vehicle. This ignition is done by sending an electrical charge to a spark plug.

Some cars have a direct ignition cassette that sends these electrical impulses. It usually looks like a long strip that is installed across a row of cylinders in your engine. Inline engines tend to have one ignition cassette, while V-shape cylinder configurations often have one cassette for each line of cylinders.

Inside the casing, your ignition cassette contains a special fluid and ignition coils. These coils connect to your spark plugs directly. There are several benefits of this design:

  • No need for a high-voltage coil and distributor
  • Elimination of often-faulty spark plug wiring
  • Easy service and replacement
  • Some sensors become unnecessary
  • Better control of ignition for increased efficiency and power

How much is a replacement direct ignition cassette?

Manufacturer list prices for a direct ignition cassette vary from $175-560 on average. This is due to the complexity of the part and the materials it's made out of.

Installation is relatively simple, but there are some complications you might not expect. Follow all of the vehicle-specific and parts manufacturer directions on both how to prepare your cassette for installation and how to perform the procedure.

What are the signs of a failing ignition cassette?

Ignition coils wear out over time. They also have the potential to overheat and melt if their circuitry is faulty or they're subjected to high voltages. Look for signs of failure to catch this potentially costly problem before it happens:

  • Spark plug problems that don't go away after the spark plugs are replaced
  • Rough starts or idling
  • Loss of power or misfires

Great experience. Great deal and quick delivery. The dealer wanted $672 for the part and $300 to install. Partsgeek had the part for $157.25 and I had my mechanic install for $50. Great savings. I love it. - SandyP

Ordered this part for my Saab 9.3 and it fit perfectly and the improved performance is great. The price was less than half the cost of a true Saab part. Recommend using Parts Geek and I will continue to use them in the future. - Fantastic Quality

Shipping was faster than expected, in fact had I known they would get it out so fast I wouldn't have paid for the faster (2 day I think) shipping. It arrived a day earlier than I expected. The part seems to work just fine so far. Parts Geek was very easy to work with. - Gwsevt

I needed the DI cassette to get my 1996 900SE running and the local parts houses needed to order the part and wanted twice the price. I was a little concerned about the time needed for the "free shipping" but the part arrived the 2nd day. I was pleased with my experience. thanks Parts Geek. - Lee
