1993 Ignition module replacement

I need to replace the ignition module in a 1993 Saturn. What do I need to do to be able to pull the old module out to replace it with a new? I know in my Taurus there is a way to disengage the lock so that the module can be removed. I'm talking about where the key is inserted to start the vehicle.

    Never mind. I figured it out. It's not the module, it's the lock cylinder I'm trying to replace. The only problem I've having now is the fact that the original key is gone.

yes it is the ignition coils . po304 is a miss fire on #4 cylinder.wires and plugs should fix the problem unless ignition coil is not firing. there are 2 coils they run 1&4 2 &3 cylinders.

the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

2006 saturn ion will run fine be drive for while then all sudden will die and won't restart from 10 min to few hours last time replace fuel pump that was not problem still does it any ideas


You need to test ,see what's missing while it won't start . Spark ! fuel pressure test, injector . Pull spark plug wires off same coil , crank engine , is there a spark jumping from one coil tower to the other ? If not the crankshaft position sensor or ignition module is bad . Saturn No Start Case Study featuring Beau Danner I would say just because I know GM ,the ignition module or crank sensor is bad .

Tip

Saturn S series runs rough


It is very common on ALL SATURN S series vehicle for ignition module failure. Usually the symptons are running rough and possibly a check engine light with misfire codes-P0300,P0301,P0302,P0303,P0304.
Some people have attampted replacing plugs and wires,even coils and continually have the problem reoccuring. What happens is the ignition module bolts(x4) stretch out through time and corrosion builds up underneath the module causing incorrect spark displacement. In turn this damages the plug wires and even at times the plugs. What needs to be done is replacing plug wires, plugs if needed, the ignition module bolts(saturn dealer item only)and the ignition module-NOT JUST THE COILS.
This should fix your problem.

My car keys are stuck in the ignition system. (1994 Saturn). Can't turn it in or pull it out. Any ideas?


search on youtube for "saturn lock cylinder replacement". if you think you can do it, buy a generic lock cylinder at advance or autozone and give it a shot. if it works your ignition keys will not match your door and trunk keys but a dealer will charge you more than the value of the car to put in a new saturn lock cylinder.

Runs smooth cold, sputters after about 2 minutes,


You might want to pull the coils and ignition control module. They are really easy to get to on this car, right on the front of the block. Ignition control modules can be tested electronically at most chain parts stores. Coil can be a bit more of a pain. Quite honestly it's very rare that any that I test, even the ones that I know are bad, test bad. Sometimes the coil windings spoil out and when they get hot they swell and no longer produce spark.

Is this a problem only in idle? Is it drivable and if so what happens then?

Where can i find the ignition module on a 1993 saturn ?


Hello.
The ignition module is mounted under the ignition coils.Just follow the ignition wires from the spark plugs to the coils.
The coils need to be removed from the module. There are two wire connectors to be removed as well.
The setup is similar on both engines available in the SL line that year.
Look at the coils carefully for burn marks from a possible errant spark discharge as this can damage your new module.Replace as necessary.
