Testing



The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) regulates the individual ignition coils and checks their function via a separate diagnostic cable. A diagnostic trouble code is generated if the control module detects a faulty signal for an ignition coil.

  1. Fault symptoms may include:

    Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) lit
     
    The engine not firing on all cylinders
     

  2.  

The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) can help diagnose which ignition coil is involved.
