The resistor is located in the two-wire ignition coil wiring harness near the coil connector on 1993-98 3.0L engines, and near the distributor connector on 3.3L engines. It has a two-wire connector and is taped to the harness. To test the resistor:
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Disconnect the resistor connector.
- Connect ohmmeter leads to the resistor terminals. The resistance should be approximately 2200 (2.2k) ohms. If not, replace the resistor.
