Re: ignition control module

Try the AutoZone.com - Get in the Zone! webpage for the repair manual for your car. I have used this webpage for my cars and it's pretty good at identifying and providing the needed repair instructions. After you've identified your auto, then you can go to a section that locator the parts/components on that model auto. Try it and see what I mean.

Re: ignition control module

It doesn't show the control module for his car on Auto Zones site. I'm not sure where it is on the 2002 mustang. Is this your car? If so, what does your manual say? You do have one ,don't you?

Re: ignition control module

no ignition control module on '02 models. '96 and later the PCM functions as the overall controller of the ignition system.

Re: ignition control module

I was surprized when I went to the Autozone website to look for the module, and found that they did not presently have the repair info available for the 2002 mustang. That's one of the reasons why you couldn't find it. The other is that function is apparently performed by something called the PCM according to the message from "Tape". And no, this isn't my vehicle and I don't have access to the manual. My mustang is a 1995.

I hope that you can find the answer to you problem.

I was replying to FlynFalcon about the manual. I just didn't do 2 seperate replies.
