This could be different programming of the new ECU. You might also need to get it tuned with the new ECU. It could have changed the ignition timing.

SOURCE: i have 1998 mitsubishi mirage i have just changed ecu /ignition assy with key reader and ignition module but the ecu is out of a different car to the ignition and module.will i need to code or synch e

Yes. problem is that some years won't sync with others. You should have gotten everything out of the same car. Then you wouldn't have to do anything except start and drive your car. you did get everything you needed, just got them out of two different cars. Codes won't match. 1 in 1000 chance they will match codes. I do this all the time, but you have to gt everything out of one car. ECM, BCM, Key,Ignition chip, and some times the instrument panel. And there is year specific, because of transmissions. But I can fix that problem also.

I have a 94 Chevy 2500 5.7Ltr auto Tran 4x4. It giving a obd1 code of 42. It seems to run great but while idle will die for no aparent reason. Some times when put into drive or reverse. HELP!


Look for corroded connector at the distributor, if the connections look good replace the ignition module...I usually change the module anyway. If replacing the module and making sure that the connector is clean you need to check the ground from the module to the ECU and the 5v signal wire from the ECU to the module. if everything else checks out and you still have code 42 then ECU night need replacing.

Does an ignition control module have anything to do with fuel pump functioning?


1987 rangers use a device called a TFI module to control ign. timing , this merely triggers a std. coil to fire the center port of distributor cap , this device only controls the coil to fire but does send a pulse for timing back to ecu this sets the base pulse for fuel injection , but its also affected by manifold Air flow and exhaust O2 amounts (closed loop) , but engine should run in base mode (open loop) fuel timing (but not well) , fuel pump relay is enabled to run via ECU output , Now your year ranger had a tech bulletin out on fuel pumps , seems they had a problem getting them to work after a fuel filter was replaced , something about a false backpressure , no if you have no/low fuel pressure then id look at fuel pump power 1st then fuel pump itself assuming you've already tried a new filter of course

you have change alot of parts but the crank sensor and the cam sensor,these control the ignition if these 2 don't work one or other you will have problems if the crank does not work then there is no signal to ecu to when to spark. cam sensor if it stops working properly it will limit its revs and go into limp mode. but will still run, they can go at the same time. you would have an engine light on. this will tell you the codes what the ecu is not reading anymore. has an ob2 connection so the ecu can be read.

1998 Toyota Camry Engine will turn over, but will not start. Changed the fuel pump, but still seems as it is not getting any fuel. What Next


There 2 main problem when cars don't turn over. Either it has no FUEL or the the iGNiTiON FAiLS! Fuel can't get into ur engine... check the fuel if u still have, gauge don't wok and u got no more fuel, FUEL pump fails,fuel filter is already BLOCKED, and AiR FiLTER is already blocked!.......... Ignition Fails,...Ur distributor coil got no more electricity 'cause by the ignition module fails! check all of these..... but the best way is go to ur mechanic and him test everything!
The worst is ur ECU fails!
taah!

It would seem like a problem with the ECU or the fuel pump, but the common link between those two systems is the ignition module that is located on the distributor under the distributor cap, and that module is actually responsible for the fuel pump signal to run the fuel pump, the dwell signal to cause the ignition coil to fire, and also the signal that the ECU uses to time and fire the injectors, and you can remove the ignition module and have it tested for free at most auto parts stores.

That does sound like a malfunction with the ignition module inside of the distributor, and you can remove the ignition module and have it tested for free at most auto part stores.

If you do purchase a new ignition module be sure that it does come with a silicone grease or a die-electric compound because it is a heat sink and the ignition module will burn up without it.

To install the new ignition module first clean out the mounting surface inside of the distributor. Then completely coat the metal contact surface under the ignition module with a thick coat the silicone grease or die-electric compound and do not leave any of the metal contact surface of the ignition module un-coated with the silicone grease or die-electric compound, and be very careful not to over-tighten the ignition module or it will be damaged.

1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?


check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead
