No, you have said too little. This year is long before my expertise but what do you mean by hard wired, and I am at a loss as to an ignition module for a 1980 model that would need to be mounted to the bottom of a battery tray. It would be very surprising to me that any electronics would be mounted under a battery tray especially if there was any chance of any battery acid, corrosion from a wet lead acid battery that would go with a 1980 motorcycle etc possible to contaminate the electronic device. An electronic ignition module could be mounted anywhere it was secure, protected from moisture, battery acid, excess vibration etc and it was adequately/properly grounded.

Make sure you give it a good tune up. Make sure that your rotor is moving when you crank it over. If it is moving then you will need to replace the distributor module.

SOURCE: need to know how to hard wire ignition module

Ford has substantially altered their 1978-86 electronic ignition test procedure. Due to the sensitive nature of the system and the complexity of the test procedures, it is recommended that you refer to your dealer if you suspect a problem in your 1978-86 electronic ignition system. The system can, of course, be tested by substituting known good components (module, stator, etc.)

This system, which at first appears to be extremely complicated, is actually quite simple to diagnose and repair. Diagnosis does, however, require the use of a voltmeter and an ohmmeter. You will also need several jumper wires with both blade ends and alligator clips.

The symptoms of a defective component within the solid state system are exactly the same as those you would encounter in a conventional system. Some of these symptoms are:
- Hard or no starting - Rough idle - Poor fuel economy - Engine misses while under load or while accelerating
If you suspect a problem in your ignition system, first perform a spark intensity test to pinpoint the problem. Using insulated pliers, hold the end of one of the spark plug leads about 1 / 2 inch; (12.7mm) away from the engine block or other good ground, and crank the engine. If you have a nice, fat spark, then your problem is not in the ignition system. If you have no spark or a very weak spark, then proceed to the following tests.

Tell if you are talking about this ignition system...

I have a 2004 Ford Ranger and when I try to remote start it, it starts but it sounds like its trying to start it again and then shuts off


If the truck starts fine with turn of the key in the ignition,look into finding the problem with the remote starter system.

Components maybe faulty or not proper.

Module.( Hidden underneath, usually somewhere under steering column area)

Receiver/Transmitter.( Mounted inside vehicle windshield )

Switch.( Under Hood,usually on the top radiator support bar )

Wiring.( all connected to the Module )

Fuse / Relay.

Remote / programming/ remote battery.

Connections that maybe loose,corroded, loose or wrongly connected.

Its also possible your vehicle might need a by pass module to connect with the remote starter module, to enable vehicle starting by remote.
.
Have a nice day.

Sorry, again far away from my expertise but if you have a pick up/can sensor with electronic module you should not need another electronic ignition module. I am not clear on what you do have. I also do not know why anyone would go back to points and condenser but if you did you would have to have ignition without any electronic modules. unless you tried to incorporate some kind of CDI system operated with points. I wonder if you cannot find an after market complete ignition system for what you are trying to do. I do not know how much you know or understand about primary or secondary ignition wiring or how the coil works. The coil usually has current to it at all times unless and until the points open or a transistor opens or cuts the flow of current to ground which collapses the primary current into the secondary windings which induces the high voltage to spark the plug. So, whatever system you have or devise it must do that. It must be able to control the current flow through the coil primary windings by cutting it off at the proper time to induce a spark at the correct time. Points do this by opening and transistorized or electronic ignition do this with semiconductors or transistors.

No spark the magneto isnt firing


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discarged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals,
ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. If your bike has a CKP sensor you must leave both plugs in
head and check for spark with a 3rd plug.
Good luck

Ignition module


Hi Anonymous, on twin cams the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.

Hi Bill, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

FIRE and FUEL........NOT CRANKING !!!!!!!


check your ignition fuses but i think your problem is between your module and ignition switch if you got safty switches on there any one of them can cause that also.
