Ignition Control Module
The Ignition Control Module is a part of the ignition system. It manages the electrical current that is fed to the ignition coil in order for it to generate the right amount of voltage for the spark-plug to ignite the fuel mixture. The ignition control module receives its signal from the magnetic pulse generator in the distributor. The magnetic pulse generator generates a signal that is synchronized with the speed of the engine and the position of the crankshaft. This digital pulse is, therefore, essentially a switching signal that ignition coil uses to control the voltage input to the ignition coil.
The ignition control module is usually mounted on the top of the engine and is heavily insulated to protect it from the heat. When the engine turns on, the engine control unit (ECU) sends a signal to the ignition control module. The ignition control module then continues to interact with the ECU signals. The ECU computes the ignition timing based on the inputs received from the engine sensors, and passes the timing signal to the ignition control module. In turn, the ignition control module sends the input to the ignition coil to fire it up. In the wasted-spark system, the ignition control module controls more than one ignition coil.
If your vehicle starts to buck and shake when you accelerate or slows down when you press the accelerator pedal, it could indicate a fault in the ignition control module. Additionally, your vehicle failure to start when you turn the ignition key could also imply a failed ignition control module. In such cases, you should replace the ignition control module at the earliest to prevent any further damage to your vehicle.
