Question by  Serafinah (232)

What can I do about ignition module failure in a Camero?


Answer by  JR25 (34)

Replacement is the only permanent solution. Shortening spark plug gaps sometimes allows the car to be driven without misfires for a short while longer. The presence of water or oil around the coil(s), boots, wires, distributor(if equipped) will shorten the life of the new components dramatically, or cause repeat failures.

I would check the various wire connections and fuses first to make sure it isn't a simpler problem. If it's the computer itself, the simplest way to fix it is to outright replace the ignition module.

The Optispark system is prone to many failures. You will need to refrain from driving the vehicle through standing water and replace the system. It will be expensive.
