Loss of Power
- If the wires connected to the ignition module are damaged, the vehicle may not start. The engine may sputter and turn over several times before enough spark is created to crank it.
- With a bad ignition module, the engine will run for a short time then suddenly lose power from overheating. Once the engine cools down, it will start again. This temperature problem may happen consistently, causing further damage that prevents the vehicle from starting.
- A bad ignition module may cause the vehicle to jerk or hesitate when the gas pedal is depressed. Also, the car may accelerate slower than usual.
