Comments about BWD Ignition Control Module:

W will see how it does. I usually try to run delco or denso electrical stuff in my truck because they last longer and work better than the aftermarket but this was all I could get on short notice. We will see how it lasts.

    Comments about BWD Ignition Control Module:

    Had a no start condition with my GMC Sonoma, could hear fuel pump running and sprayed with start fluid still would not even try to turn over, had to be spark. I purchased a coil and this ignition module, changed module first and engine started right up, since coil was original I went ahead and changed it to. The price was reasonable for both parts and truck runs good again. parts were a direct fit with no problems and included the electric grease to install proper. I would buy and use this part again.

        Comments about BWD Ignition Control Module:

        I was experiencing intermittent failure. Engine ran when cold, but died after running a couple of minutes. Fuel pressue was good, but no spark. The ignition control module seemed the most likely cause. Simple to install. Attaches to coil ontop of the engine, under the air intake tube. Replacing this part resolved the problem.

              Was well worth time and price. So easy to install '96 Blazer. One owner vehicle is well maintained. Just would not start. So after determining problem was not fuel related by spaying starter fluid in the carb. I then purchased cap, rotor, coil and Electronic Ignition Control Module. Blazer started right up and runs noticeably better. Saved lots money do it yourself.

                        Hi Percy! Please check your battery condition, ignition control module, relay, and wiring for this starting problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                      i have a 1997 GMC k 1500 pickup it starts fine and runs fine for about 7 miles, then it stats to skip and lose power and you have to feather the gas pedal to keep going. you can pull off the road cut the engine off for a couple minutes start back up then same thing happens. I have replaced distributor cap, rotor cap, plug wires, plugs, coil, throttle position sensor, and i have good fuel pressure, still does the same thing. could the ignition control module be the problem?

                        A:

                        Hi Customer, glad to assist you! I think there may be a problem with the idle air control valve. The idle control valve controls the amount of air that goes into the engine, which allows the computer to maintain the proper engine speed. When an idle control valve becomes contaminated or stuck, it may lead to an unsteady and rough idle. The car will stall if the valve is too clogged or when it finally fails. If, while holding the accelerator pedal down, a small amount of pressure keeps the car running at a stop, the idle control valve may require attention. But, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
