SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition

Under the steering column is an access plug. Remove the plug and insert a small shaft driver into the hole and push up gently, the key will release.

Check the prrimary and secondary resistance on your coil. Also check the resistance of the plug wires and plug gap.

Worst starting problem ever! Must be something simple, just can't find it.

Ignition module? Is that what you meant by control module? Don't go cheap with that. Also starter solenoid may not have the run wire in the right location. The little one on the solenoid. Sorry if posted twice....

I have a 92 s10 blazer won't stay running I have replaced plugs wires distributor capcomputer moduleand nothing helped as soon as it warms up just a little bit it will start spitting and then die help...

Check the throttle position sensor. The fuel injector used for the choke is the only thing keeping the engine running. As soon as the engine warms up, the computer shuts off the injector causing the engine to starve.

Engine starts when cold but won't restart when half warmed up

It's probably still a problem with the ignition control module/coil, with a circuit in or attached to it heating up as the engine warms, and then the circuit opens when stopped and it starts to cool. As soon as the engine sufficiently cools off, the circuit would revert to a good connection. I would carefully check the connectors and wiring on both sides of the module, and then possibly trying another module.

1999 eclipse no spark

On the 2.0 and 2.4 engines there is an ignition module that fires the coil from input from the computer and sensors.
You may have to get a shop manual to have the testing procedures needed to check the module.
