Ford / Mercury / Lincoln Electronic Ignition Control Module/Unit
Wiring Connections/Diagram with a Magnetic Pickup Coil
This ignition system operates with full 12 volts. Can be used with virtually
any magnetic pickup coil or proximity sensor and ignition coil, regardless
of the ohms resistance or voltage output, and will produce a strong spark
so the engine will idle smooth and accelerate quickly to full speed (wide
open throttle) with no hesitation or misfire.
The coil and/or module may burn up if the ignition switch is left on for
more than 5 minutes with the engine not running.
and Purple wires on module to either
wires on the magnetic pickup coil. NOTE: Due to
polarity of certain magnetic pickup coils, it may be necessary to connect
these two wires one way or the other so the engine will accelerate.
Connect Green wire on module to ignition
coil negative () terminal. For competition pulling - if the
grounding-type killswitch is used, connect the ungrounded wire from the
killswitch to this terminal. Or for a generator engine, connect this terminal
with a semiconductor rectifier diode to "excite" or temporarily energize
the field windings in the generator.
Connect Red wire on module to ignition
coil positive (+) terminal and to ignition switch (battery positive (+) post).
Black wire on module must be connected to engine/chassis ground (battery
negative () post).
(Optional) The White wire connects to the "I" (Ignition) terminal
4-terminal starter solenoid to give the coil
temporary full 12 volts for a stronger spark for faster cold engine start
up. If the White wire is connected directly to the coil full-time and the
engine is ran for a long period of time, the coil could overheat and eventually
burn up. (The module does NOT have a built-in timing retard.)
