Would the check engine light come on if the ignition modular is bad and would the cam senior over ride the ingintion modular, if so would the check engine light be on.

What exactly is the problem? What codes do you have in your on board diagnostics? (Flash code or D-DEC II) If either are going bad it will trip a fault code and turn the check engine light on. Most auto part stores will do a free code check reading for you, or do a flash code check. Instructions are on this websight.

There is no codes. The check engine light is not on and I have no fire to the plugs.

Ignition controll mod is under the distributor cap & rotor. It is the inductive pick up that reads the shaft on the distributor ( telling the computer when to send spark from the coil )
