    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Control Module:

    Replaced the ICM on my 3.1 after the car left me stranded twice. Both times I had no spark. Crank sensor test checked out fine so I picked this part up. So far after about 500 miles it's been trouble free. The part I got was made in USA so I'm hoping it will hold up.

        I have had to replace this part 5 times now with in 2 years. It certainly does correct the engine malfunctions. For some reason it is not a built to last. For a part that cost over a hundred dollars it's durability is that of a five dollar part. Hopefully the fifth time is the charm. The only reason I am selecting to recommend to a friend is because the engine will either run very bad or not at all without it.

          Replaced ICM as my check engine light was on and this was one of the suggested fixes. It wasnt, but based on the product itself, it appears to be very comparable to stock, and a pretty sturdy built product. I can't attest for any performance gain or use, but assume it would work the same.

                      Hi Fred! Possibly a reason. However, without specific vehicle, it's hard to tell for sure. To give you the correct information I would need the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle.

                    I have been having a misfire on plug 3 and replaced the coil pack. This seemed to fix the problem for one day and the problem is coming back to almost the level it was before. The vehicle actually surges when I accelerating and I have noticed it is running slightly hotter than normal. Will this ignition control module solve this problem?

                      A:

                      Hello Terry, Sorry to hear you are still having issues with your vehicle. One tell tell sign for a faulty ignition control module (ICM) is that the vehicle will just fall dead. The ICM is temperature-sensitive, it will fail when it heats up and after it cools, it will start again. If you are not experiencing this yet, then it may not be the problem. Changing the spark plug wires and spark plugs could also help. If you purchase the Haynes manual for your vehicle, you will find a troubleshooting section that can help you determine the issue. Call us at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and we can assist you.

                      I'd be happy to help you with that! You would place the dielectic grease on the terminal pins. It is used to insulate the connectors where the current is flowing if you choose to use it.

                  • Q:

                    What are the symptoms of a bad Ignition Control Module or (ICM)? And, why does it have to be programmed after installation? Is there typically a charge for programming the ICM?
                    Asked on 7/26/2012 by Manny from New Britain, CT

                    1 answer

                    • CUSTOMER CARE

                      A:

                      The Ignition Control Module (ICM) does not require programming. If the ignition control module is faulty, the car may shake or jerk with increasing speed. Also, the vehicle may seem to slow down instead of speed up when the gas pedal is pressed. The vehicle may not start. The engine may turn over but never crank. Also, turning the ignition key may produce a clicking sound from the engine, but no spark. The vehicle may show signs of overheating. If the temperature of the engine rises above normal, the vehicle will lose power. After the engine cools down, the vehicle will start again. If the ignition control module is the problem, the engine will overheat repeatedly, causing further damage that will prevent it from starting at all. A faulty ignition control module results when other parts, such as the spark plugs, fail. Accordingly, a repair shop will check other parts of your vehicle's ignition system for damage. Any parts that are found faulty should be replaced along with the ignition control module to avoid a recurrence of the initial problem.

                      The ignition control module on your 2004 Pontiac Grand Am should be located under the plastic panel on drivers side of the dash.

                    • A:

                      Incorrect answer Dennis. The ICM(ignition control module)in a 03/04 Grand Am with a 3.4 engine is located under the 3 ignition spark coils on the top rear of the engine. You need to remove the 3 ignition spark coils to get access to it. There are 3 connectors that plug into the module.

                      No, the ignition control module does not have any concern with the cooling fan. There may be a problem in cooling fan relay. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
