It does not have an ignition control module.
The electronic ignition (EI) for the 4.0L engine consists of the following components:
Crankshaft position sensor (CKP sensor) and 36 minus 1 tooth trigger wheel.
Ignition coil .
powertrain control module (PCM) .
The PCM controls the firing of the coil based on the signal from the crankshaft position sensor.
The crankshaft position sensor (CKP sensor) is a variable reluctance-type sensor, triggered by a 36 minus 1 tooth trigger wheel configuration machined into the rear of the crankshaft vibration damper. The signal generated by this CKP sensor is called a CKP signal. The CKP signal provides the base timing and rpm information to the powertrain control module (PCM). Base timing is set at 10 degrees BTDC and is not adjustable.
If vehicle has no spark then turn key to on position,check engine light should come on.As you start cranking engine it should go out while cranking after about 10 secs. it should come back on(while cranking). If it come on then the PCM sees the signal,if it does not then PCM is not seeing it and this is your problem,either the CKP sensor or the wiring to it.

It does not have an ignition control module. The PCM (powertrain control module) fires the coil pack based on signal it recieves from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor.

The SRS computer needs to be reset, if you dont have a repair manual i would first suggest finding one for each car. The basic principal is that you jumper the diagnostic plug (under the glove box in the RL). The next step I believe is that you must depress the TCS button, then while holding it down you turn the key to on, continue to hold the TCS button for 15 sec and then let off. The check engine light should then blink really quick a few times and that means its reset. Im reciting this from memory so dont quote me on it. I have done it before for the RL but not the integra, id really suggest finding a repair manual though.
