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 module is located behind the dash just to the left of the radio. remove the two screws below the radio and the dash panel snaps out and you can access the module
