Ignition control module

I have a 2005 LeSabre. in the last 2 yrs I have had the Ignition Control Module go bad now for the 3rd time. the first time I just replaced it. the 2nd time I replaced it I also replace the coil packs and spark plug wires. The ICM is a Delphi and the coils and wires were AC Delco. this time I took to the local shop and they did have a reason for this to continue to happen.

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

You probably need a crank sensor.

SOURCE: no gas, no spark, 1991 chevy cavalier 2.2l 4cyl

This is an all too common problem with the Cavalier and other GM J-body cars. Usually it is because of the crankshaft position sensor or the harness going between it and the DIS (aka ignition module). Without the DIS seeing a signal from the crank sensor, it doesn't know when to trigger fuel and spark.

Sometimes this can also be caused by a faulty ignition switch. The switch will allow you to "crank" the car, but it doesn't make the proper connections for the ignition system, so the car never actually runs.

The previously indicated oil pressure switch could also be causing the problem, but if you hear your fuel pump run then it's OK.

Hopefully this helps. If not, your Cavalier is as messed up as mine and probably not worth fixing.

Location of ignition control module 2001 cadilac deville


Ignition Coils/Modules
The electronic ignition system uses an individual ignition coil for each cylinder. There are two separate ignition module assemblies located in the camshaft cover of each cylinder bank. Each ignition module assembly contains an ignition control module and four ignition coils. Each ignition coil connects directly to a spark plug using a boot. This arrangement eliminates the need for secondary ignition wires. The ignition module assemblies receive power from a fused ignition feed. Both ignition module assemblies connect to chassis ground. A Reference Low and four ignition control (IC) circuits connect each ignition module assembly to the PCM. The PCM uses the individual IC circuits to control coil sequencing and spark timing for each ignition coil. The IC circuits transmit timing pulses from the PCM to the ignition control module to trigger the ignition coil and fire the spark plug. The PCM controls ignition system sequencing and timing events

OK,
Have you tried the following:


Ignition Control Module (ICM) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: Only the EEC-IV ignition systems use an external ICM. EEC-V systems have incorperated the ICM into the Power Control Module (PCM).
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the wiring harness connector(s) from the ICM.
  3. Remove the mounting bolts, then remove the ICM. To install:
  4. Position the ICM onto the inner fender apron and install the mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts to 22–31 inch lbs (2.5–3.5 Nm).
  5. Attach the wiring harness connector(s) to the ICM.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable. Fig. 1: Ignition control module and mounting location on the 2.3L, 2.5L engine 89682g32.gif

2000 Buick LeSabre Will not start Replaced cam


Multiple engine misfire is related to the coils and the ignition control module. I have a 2002 with the 3.8 engine. It has three coils. I just went through this problem. I bought one coil and tried it in each position with no improvement. It was the ignition control module. Mine is located under the three coils. A relatively easy item to replace. Cost about $140.

Engine misses with code 41 and service engine soon light on


The code 41 is indicating an EST control issue. I would check you connection at the ignition module, make sure the connector is locked securely and there is no corrosion in the connector or terminal pins on the ignition module.
The EST is your electronic spark timing control, the module is not switching over to ECM controlled timing. The ECM sets the code when it can not take over control of the timing. If the connections look good, you likely have an ignition module that has gone bad.
Good luck and let me know.
