        1981 F-100, 5.0L, would crank but not start till I left off the key. Also would randomly just stop running. This module fixed both issues. Plug and play. Easy install. Just make sure you get the right module for your application. Match the color of the sealant where the wires exit the module. Mine was blue. I think there is also a white and a black.

          The true test here is the long run test; how long will the BWD part last? So far, its apparent durability seems far better than the off-brand part it replaced.

                          A:

                          Hi Mike, glad to help you! To test the ignition control module you will need a digital multimeter. Here is the instructions: Remove one plug wire at the spark plug and insert an old spark plug into the end of the plug boot. Place the spark plug on a metal surface on the engine. Crank the engine and check for a spark at the old spark plug. No spark on the plug indicates an ignition problem. Check for voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on. Place the red lead of the multimeter on the positive coil terminal. Place the black lead to the battery negative terminal. Turn on the ignition switch to the "Run" position. The multimeter should read battery voltage at the positive terminal. If voltage is not present, then the problem is with the ignition switch or ignition wiring circuit. Locate the ignition module positive (+) wire. Turn the key "Run" position without starting the engine. Pierce the positive wire with the multimeter's red lead. There should be a reading of battery voltage at the wire. If battery voltage is not present, check for an open circuit between the wire and the ignition switch. Locate the ignition module negative (-) wire. Pierce the negative wire with the multimeter's red lead. Remove the distributor cap without removing the spark plug wires. Rotate the distributor center shaft by hand or by cranking the engine. Observe the distributor rotor as the engine is being cranked over. If the distributor rotor fails to turn, then the distributor or distributor gears are bad. The multimeter should read voltage alternating between battery voltage and zero. Replace the ignition module if the multimeter reading fails to fluctuate between battery voltage and zero as the distributor is turning. Install the distributor cap and fasten it securely to the distributor. Disconnect the multimeter from the ignition module and battery.

It sparks when I first start turning the engine over and quits spark and sparks again when I turn the key off. Have replaced pickup coil, rotor, cap, plugs, and wires and made no difference. It isn;t a fuel problem. I'm thinking engine control module. Help!!!

                          Unfortunately, there are no signs the module is going out. In most cases the module will fail with no warning. I have even had a vehicle just quit running while driving once using the duraspark module. My suggestion is to always have a spare module, and mount it on the inner fender next to the other module. If it quits, just unplug and plug into the new one. The only thing I can think of that would cause premature failure of the module is the pink resistor wire between the ignition switch and ignition coil. A good reason NOT to waste money on a aftermarket ignition coil. The pink wire reduces the voltage, and the module starts losing voltage around 3,000rpm. My suggestion is if you have a smallblock v-8, Proform makes a HEI distributor for under 200 bucks, and it works like a champ. It is a one wire hookup and even has the spare terminal for a tach. I have converted both my truck and ratrod with this unit. I dont believe one is available for the 4.9 six cylinder.
