Replaced as preventive maintenance with my coils... module went out in the middle of idle out of nowhere!!! Cost me $62 for a tow just to find the car isn't getting any spark from the brand new module!! Put the old factory item in and started up perfect... idles better than with the new bwd!!! Waste of time and tow fees... i will be returning for a refund or some type of store credit... i don't want this junk on my car again.. from now on i will only buy Delphi icm for my personal vehicles...

            Encountered sudden random misfire in my 2005 Buick Lacrosse. Suspected ignition control module or coil packs. Removed coil packs and ignition control module from vehicle. Coil packs seemed to check out ok, so I took ICM to Advance Auto to test it. Counter person had not uses test equipment for ICM in awhile, so I assisted him in setting up test equipment. Finally set up test and it looked like it failed. To be sure, took new replacement ignition control module and tested it. It passed, so purchased it and no issues so far.

                      Replace original with this unit soley based on price. It lasted from Nov 2015 to June 2016 not even a full year. Leaving a red light and car started to spit and sputter and was 63 miles from home. I did baby it home took 2 hrs getting it home. Code that popped up was a 300 code. Put a junk yard unit in and it totally ran perfect. At first thought it was a plugged exhaust but they do not fail all of a sudden like this did. I had other problems with BWD sensors and such. Went back to AC Delco OEM and had good luck since. Its up to you as AC/Delco is a high priced unit for a module. Junk yard in my area will refund if part fails within their warranty, have a 2003 Impala 3800

                      • Q:

                        Should you use an dielectric grease to apply between ignition control module and the plate it is fasten too. One mechanic told me it is necessary for heat dissipation and another mechanic told me no. I have a 3800 engine on an 2003 Impala with 145,000 plus miles on the old girl and she uses very very little oil to speak of and runs great at idle and at speed

                          I'm glad to assist, Olddude! If grease is supplied with the module, it should be used. Many modules no longer use it, so it goes by a part number by part number basis.

                          Hi Brian, a faulty ignition control module may also cause this 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.

                          With reference to this BWD Ignition Control Module - part# CBE47P, the ignition control module may be the possible cause of the problem on your Pontiac Grand Am. 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. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                          Yes, these problems are common with a bad ignition control module. The Ignition control module in a 1997 Pontiac Firebird is located in the back side of the engine by the firewall, and it will be the base for the ignition coils.

                          A:

                          A classic example is when the engine will start, but when it gets hot, the ignition module's electrical properties change, cuasing the car to die suddenly, but restart after several minutes of cooling. Another way to test for this is to allow the engine to run for a total of 30 minutes, then gently tap the module with the back of a screwdriver. If the car fails, this is usually the source. Sometimes the car will not start at all, but this should lead to checking the ignition coil first. This is usually characterized by no spark, no combustion, but good power (or weak power) into the ignition coil. This is usually checked first, as both are common problems. Basically, check for spark, if you dont have any, keep going back until you have checked the ignition coil, distibutor, ignitor, module (in that order) and any grounds, resistors, capacitors, etc. Use a test light, a voltmeter (multimeter) and get a book for your car from your local Advance Auto Parts store.
