A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

Where does the ground wire on the ignition module of a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 run to? I believe it is the bottom wire #6, top wire being number 1. It seems like my distributor has a bad ground!


Check there is a good spark from the ignition coil when the distributor is pulsed, if so check that the rotor is not earthing out on the distributor shaft. if no spark from the coil have it tested.

I need ignition coil diagram ford focus 2000 LX (connections back 4321)


you have a single 3 or 4 pin connector to the coil pack. Someimes the wires get corroded and break off at the connector. Ford has a pigtail kit to fix that issue. Usually a misfire with the check engine light on.

Green/bluestripe is from ignition switch

Black/green stripe is to PCM (computer)

Black/orange stripe is to PCM

These last 2 wires are what the PCM uses to fire the spark plugs 2 at a time.

Got a new tach ,my car doesn't have one, how do I hook it up to a '90 buick 3.3 with electronic ignition? The "instructions" only show how to hook up to standard ignition.


Hello! Your vehicle is equipped with a distributor-less ignition systems; C-31...Does your engine have a "coil pack"? As in two cylinders per coil? The coil pack has a two wire connector at the top which is Ground and +12 volts...At the bottom are 2 connectors...The one on the left is a 4 wire and to its right a 2 wire...the one you are interested in is the 4 wire connector...Reading from left to right...Pin 1=Ground...Pin 2=Reference voltage...Pin 3=6X...
And Pin 4=Tachometer
...Hook the Tachometer wire (probably a green lead) to Pin 4...There is the possibility that the ignition module has a Tachometer input connection...If so use it...If not use Pin 4...
