Here's the link to a great, cheapo fix for a bad ignitor. Just want to know if anyone has tried this and are the ignition wires the same colors as on an mx6?? Great idea to have one of these in the glovebox in case of a disty emergency...
I think this mod was referencing the 93-94 year models of the probe and 6. In 95 and later it was supposedly changed. I just wanted to know if anyone with a 93-94 mx6 had known about this, or actually had done this instead of getting a new disty....and
if the wire colors were the same.
In addition to the above question, has anyone done it to a 4cyl? I'd like to know, so I can make up my mind about either keeping or returning the spare distributor.
I just havent heard of many people doing this mod. Any particular reasons?
My thirst for knowledge is often met with ridicule. Thats what happens when you drive the same car as every moron in NYC--a maxima.
I saw this mod on probetalk, but since we basically have the same cars, just figures we'd have motorheads on here that would
have done it also. Be nice knowing the wire colors. I will check the ignition wires/colors next time I'm under the hood. Definitely sounds like a quick, cheap, but permanent fix for the POS disty's.
Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?
I just did this mod today. However, I made my own harness adapter (male/female) using parts from junkyard. This method made it unnecessary to alter the original harness wiring and I can plug in the by-pass or remove it at will. The contact from the ignition module to the coil still have to be removed (cut) or replaced by a (pre-cut) modified plug which I also got from the junkyard.
It fires up and works just like my old module when it was new. I see no difference, possibly even better performance. The wiring is the same as in their posted pics. The wire colors are different, but the arangement on the '93 & '94 are the same if you look from the back where the wires go into the connector.
As for mounting, I used two sheet metal self tapping screws to mount it on the wall behind the driver's side head-light. There is much more cooler than the temps found inside the disty.
