Most parts stores, such as Auto Zone, can give you the specific Ohms values for your coil. You will want to check the resistance between where the coil wire goes to the coil, and the electrical terminals the coil. And compare it with the OEM resistance.

How to change ignition control modular


there are three types you need to know what one it is, one type is on the dispack and the other 2 fit to the distributor one type has 3 connectors and other type has 1 connector, dispack best just to change the whole unit as the pins can brake if you remove the modular of it.

No spark at the coil replace all spark plug wire and coil wire but start with fuel pump first it wont start anyways without fuel id look into a new cap and rotar with the plug wires might get lucky and find a distributor at a wreckers for the same price as cap and rotar

2001 nissan altima died while driving, engine cranks but won't start. there is no spark now to the spark plugs ( I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel pressure regulator in case it was a fuel...


If there is no spark to the plugs, you may have inadvertently blown a fuse for the ignition system when changing other parts. Check the fuses in the box under the dash or under the bonnet. Also have a look and make sure the little carbon brush pickup hasn't fallen out of the distributor cap. Its the little black thing in the middle inside of the cap. It is spring loaded and sometimes can fall out.

My 93 nissan altima stalled while driving and will not start back. put on a new coil, new fuel pump. still will not start. is it the crank sensor or distributor?


First, verify all connections at distributor (both ends of each cable) are securely connected and inspect all lengths of each plug wire to make sure there are no major breaks, cuts, burns, abrasions that would be causing a short. Then, try another plug just to make sure it's not a bad spark/coil wire. If still no spark, then I would say rotor/distributor cap/distributor/ICM module (Ignition Control Module) is the problem. You can generally buy those parts seperate, or you can buy a whole distributor that typically has all combined. The ICM can usually be removed without too much difficulty and taken to an autoparts store for a test, but not always. If you go with the "piecemeal" solution, start with ICM test (if removable), then rotor cap, then move to distrubutor cap. If nothing has worked to this point, you can replace the distributor, but you have already bought everything BUT the actual distributor. It would make sense to price everything seperately versus cost of new distributor...up to you.

If you do replace the distributor, be absolutely sure to mark the position/direction the rotor cap is pointed on old one, so you can re-install the new one in exact same position. Otherwise finding TDC (top dead center) on #1 cylinder is another whole process.

1996 Nissan Altima. No start. Spark from coil to cap. no spark @ plugs; should i start @ Ignition Control Module replacement. if so how?


Does the rotor turn? I would check that out. Take the cap off, have someone crank the engine and watch the rotor to see if it's turning. If it does then try a new cap and rotor. If it does not, I would suspect timing belt. Hope this helps, TJ

It had a new cap and rotar and plug wires put on from the people I bought the car from .People told me it started having this problem after they installed the new parts they bought at Autozone so I went and purchased the factory wires ,and dist.cap from a reputable parts store and replaced them and bingo ,no more problem.When buying ignition parts do not go cheap and buy from Autozone.
