SOURCE: where is the ignition module control located on 1996 ranger 2.3 e

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.

SOURCE: where is the ignition module located on the 1996 ford contour?

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: how do i test a ignition module on 2003 saturn vue

First thing is to check for codes which would indicate if you have an ignition module issue, a crank sensor issue or possible a PCM issue. If you do not check for codes first you will create new ones and then determining the problem will be alot more difficult.

SOURCE: 1996 saturn ignition burned up how do I replace it

Hello there, here are a few tips to guide you through.

  • Disconnect the negative battery connection cable from the battery terminal. Remove both the upper and lower steering column covers by either unscrewing them or unclipping them, depending on your car make and model. You may need to use a small pry bar to remove the upper and lower steering column covers, if so, use caution and take your time, you don't want to shatter or crack the plastic covers.
  • Remove the steering wheel cover and unscrew the steering wheel from the steering column, there should be six bolts securing it in place. Pull the steering wheel off the shaft slightly and make a mark on both the steering wheel and the shaft to make it easier to line up during the reassembly process. Disconnect the horn wire from the steering wheel by pulling on the boot --- not the wire itself --- to avoid any damage. Pull the steering wheel straight back and remove it entirely from the assembly.
  • Remove the spacer sleeve off the steering column. Remove the large center nut and washer from the steering column that secures the steering wheel adapter in place. Don't remove the steering wheel adapter until you have made a mark on it and the shaft so that you can properly realign them when reassembling. Gently remove the adapter by pulling straight back on it and set it aside.
  • Remove the three screws securing the stock in position. Remove the screws securing the plastic casing around the stock and take the casing off. Carefully pull the stock away from the steering column and gently guide the wires out until they have cleared the steering column, revealing the ignition switch assembly. You don't have to remove the wires from the stock; it's light enough to hang by the wires and not cause damage. Just pull out enough so that it's out of the way. In some cases, the stock will come apart in two pieces. If that's the case, slide off the first piece of the stock and unscrew the second piece, which is usually the piece that connects to your signal switch. Pull it off and bring it together with the first piece of the stock.
  • Remove the small plastic spacer collar around the steering column by gently prying it back inch by inch. Remove the Allen head bolt located on the underside of the steering column and pull back the assembly with the ignition switch. Unplug the wires from the back of the ignition switch and pull it away from the steering column.
  • Insert your key into the ignition and turn it to the locked position. Unscrew the small Phillips screw securing the ignition switch in the ignition switch assembly and slide it out. Put your new ignition switch into the ignition switch assembly and reassemble the entire steering system in the reverse order. Some ignition switch models will require you to depress a retaining pin with a small screwdriver while the key is in the locked position to remove it from the assembly. If your ignition switch is not secured with a small Phillips screw, look for the retaining pin.

Best of luck.

How do you bypass the ignition switch on a 1996 Saturn

You can't. The key, the ignition switch have paired chips and in conjunction with the ECM are all part of the alarm and immobiliser system. It is designed to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

You didn't say where the arcing occurs. Wherever you see the spark is the mostly likely location of the problem. For example, if the arcing is in the ignition switch, change the switch. Etc.

Where is the black ignition box located on a 2001 saturn?

If it's the ignition module you're talking about, it's located underneath your ignition coils. The easiest thing to do to be sure, and not take my word for it, is to go down to O'reilly's or any other auto parts store, and buy a shop manual for your car. I don't do any troubleshooting without having a shop manual handy.

OBD will not pass on saturn.It tells me I need a camshaft position sencer.My garage doesnt want to mess with it.Where is this item located and is it an easy replaced piece?

The 4 cylinder engine in your 1996 Saturn SL doesn't use a cam sensor. I know, then how could there be a code for the cam sensor? Well, The electronic ignition (EI) module supplies a signal to the PCM whenever it determines that the #4 cylinder fired on its compression stroke.

You should start by checking to make sure your spark plug wire terminals on the ignition coils are not corroded. Using a multimeter, check the resistance and continuity of each ignition wire. If your car is misfiring, replace your spark plug wires and have the code cleared at your local AutoZone or Advance Auto, unless you have a code scanner.

If the code comes back, most likely you have a bad crankshaft position sensor throwing the code. While the engine is running there should be a +5 volts on the crank sensor everytime the magnetic pickup reads the crankshaft. Using a multimeter you can check the voltage to see if the sensor is functioning properly.
