Question about 1991 Ford Aerostar Extended

Need ignition schematic for late 1991/92 Ford aerostar

Intermittent ignition on this 1991 aerostar. It has a 4 wire pickup to the dist. and the ignition module is mounted on the R/F fender. Need to know where the ignition system gets it ground and what the 4 wires to the hall effect dist. pickup do. Chilton is no help. They only show the circuit for the dist. mounted ignition module. Ignition module is a CBE40Z with one 6 pin connector. Where can I add a temp. ground wire? Schematic would be nice.

    I don't trust to drive this car to a Ford dealer. A schematic of the ignition system with what the 4 wires to the dist. pickup and where this circuit gets it ground would be nice.

I do not have the pinout for the ignition module connector , however I hope that the 1993 Ford Aerostar wiring diagram on this website can help.

There is also a recall on Forde aerostar ignition System for model 1991/1993 , that means that if you contact a Ford authorized dealer, or contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673, you may have the job done at a garage for free. See FORD MOTOR COMPANY Recall for 1991 FORD AEROSTAR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM .

318 ci. Why does it lose fire to new coil?

Check for loose wires around the coil post also check for broken wire inside the dist/pickup coil in the distributor and if maybe a relay is intermittent in the ignition system. Hope this helps. .

This sounds like ignition wires if they are cracked and chaped this will cause hard start if at all .Want to test them?at night open hood you might see sparks if you want spray a bit of water from a spray bottle lightly once you wil see small sparks.

How do i remove the distributor on a ford 1991 aerostar i need to replace my ignition pickup

Take the doghouse out of the cab of the van (the cloth piece behind where you put the car in Drive, Park, Nuetral, etc). There you should see all your plug wires, your distributor cap, under that your rotor.. and under that your distributor.
Pretty self explanatory on how to get it off, its just a tight squeeze. Good luck

1990 K5 Blazer DIED(Electrical?)?

There may be no injector pulse if the computor does not see a RPM signal.
There will be no spark if the ignition module does not see a dist pulse from the dist pickup.......a RPM signal.
Because you do not have both ......I would suggest to check/change the dist pick up.
Follow the wires from the ignition module inside the dist to the pickup which is also inside the dist.
If it is just a bad dist pickup....keep all your old parts as good spares. the dist turning? to provide a RPM signal?
You will have to remove the dist to change the pick-up.....mark your timing locations......"rotor position" and "dist body location"before removal.
A quick test before installing the "repaired dist" .....plug it in the the truck wiring and turn on the key....DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR DIST ROTOR CORRECT you spin the dist by hand .....the injectors should spray.

I have a 86 Mercury Marquis that I am working on helping someone out and I would like to know how the ignition module is won't start.....i have replaced battery, ignition coil, cap and...

if the module is on the side of the distributer it takes a wrench made just for ford modules to remove 2 screws, if you need to replace the pickup in the dist. you have to remove the dist. out of the engine pull the gear off and pull the shaft out of the dist.

1993 Ford Aerostar Parasite drain on battery

id check the ignition coil to ensure its not arcing that seems to be a problem on the aerostars. One thing ive known people to do and recommend for troublesome times when they cant find whats draining the battery. Is to get a battery cut off switch and install it which is fairly easy and takes ten minutes. But first check the ignition coil to see if its arcing, also check to see if you can find whats drawing power by chasing it down with a multimeter.
