Ford / Mercury / Lincoln Electronic Ignition Control Module/Unit
Wiring Connections/Diagram with a 3-Wire Inductive or Hall Effect Proximity
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.
Connect the Black and
Blue wires on sensor to the
Purple wires on module. It shouldn't
matter how the Black and Blue wires are connected
to the Orange and
Purple wires, but if the engine will not accelerate,
reverse these two wire connections.
Always connect the Blue wire on the sensor
to the engine/chassis ground (battery negative () post). The proximity
sensor will not work if the blue wire is not also grounded.
Connect the Green wire on module to ignition
coil negative () terminal. For competition pulling - if you're using
the grounding-type of killswitch, 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 the Brown wire on the sensor
to the Red wire on the module, and to
the ignition coil positive (+) terminal, and to the ignition switch (battery
positive (+) post).
The Black wire on the module must be connected to the 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.)
Some proximity sensors have
an LED (Light Emitting Diode) on the rear of unit. If the proximity sensor
is wired correctly, the LED will illuminate when in close proximity to the
