The secondary ignition system consists of, everything between the ignition coil and the spark plug.

But, it all starts at the coil, because its the primary side, that make the secondary side work.

So, coils and spark plugs, have evolved over the years. But, its what’s between them, that has changed the everything.

Above all, the secondary ignition system, has made vast improvements over the years. In other words, to make the systems more; reliable, durable and adjustable, to suit the needs of modern engines. These days you can get both, electronic ignition systems and distributorless ignition systems.

Meanwhile, the electronic system, has an (ECM), controlling the opening and closing, of the primary circuit. As a result, this allowed you to, not have a distributor. In addition, these systems also, create a stronger spark. So, the distributorless ignition system, benefits from not having any moving parts.

This removes common issues like:

  • Engine drag, because of the distributor’s bulkiness.
  • Timing adjustments.
  • Starting problems, due to moisture in the distributor.

Today, we use, an (ECM), an ignition control module and a, magnetic triggering device. And, are also used to, open and close the circuit, along with the timing adjustments.

So, problems in the secondary circuit, could cause issues with the ignition. In addition, any problems in the primary circuit or the fuel injection system, could also affect the ignition. Remember that the secondary circuit, has high-voltage current running through it. So, keep safety guidelines in mind, when working with this.
