Default Re: ignition system

There's the:

Point-type ignition system

Electronic Ignition system

Distributorless Ignition system

Direct Ignition system.

The Direct Ignition System (DIS) uses either a magnetic crankshaft sensor, camshaft position sensor, or both, to determine crankshaft position and engine speed. This signal is sent to the ignition control module or engine control module which then energizes the appropriate coil.

They get paid for warranty repairs. Not as much as the customer would be charged. Go figure!
