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.

The ignition module is held on to the distributor by two 5.5mm bolts, but there is a tool for getting those bolts out. And you're right they are prone to failure.

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.

tragik nc: In looking this car up in both the 4 and 6 cyl configurations, Ford said that the ignition control module is no longer a separate component. It is actually integrated into the PCM (power control module)
This is located in the right rear corner of the engine compartment behind the power steering reservoir.
Good Luck, mybunkey>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOURCE: ignition module location
IT SHOULD BE ON THE DRIVERS SIDE FENDER, THE MODULE SHOULD BE A SILVER OR GRAY BOX WITH A COUPLE OF PLUGS ON IT, THE BOLTS THAT HOLD IT TO THE FENDER WILL NEED TO BE ACCESSED FROM INSIDE THE WHEEL WELL. THIS STYLE IGNITION CONTROL MODULE IS FAMOUS FOR GETTING HOT AND JUST TURNING OFF LEAVING YOU STRANDED, IN MOST CASES THE VEHICLE WILL RESTART AFTER THE MODULE HAS TIME TO COOL OFF.
