Where Power Begins
A modern automotive engine is similar to an orchestra, with dozens of key players contributing precisely the right “notes” at precisely the right times in a flawless performance. The ignition system is the equivalent of the percussion section, whose rhythm fires the engine at the perfect time to ensure optimal performance, efficiency, reliability and harmony.
What Does The Ignition System Do?
When the engine starts, battery voltage is routed to the ignition system. Low voltage is transformed into high voltage in the ignition coil, and, along with other inputs from the engine management system, creates a precisely timed spark at the spark plugs, which ignites the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder allowing the engine to run.
From ignition coils and ignition control modules to switches and sensors, Wells offers an extensive lineup of high-quality replacement parts for both domestic and foreign vehicle ignition systems. We manufacture products that are identical to the OE part in fit, form and function as well as Wells-optimized products that improve on the original designs.
- Ignition Coils
- Ignition Control Modules
- Distributor Pick-Up Coils
- Related Ignition Sensors
- Ignition Switches
Ignition Coils use electricity from a vehicle’s battery and amplify the voltage before transporting it to the spark plugs. The spark plugs then ignite the air/fuel mixture. Wells offers a variety of ignition coils, direct ignition system coils, conventional coils, rail coils and more.
Ignition Control Modules
The Ignition Control Module regulates ignition timing by providing the ignition coil a precise signal for for optimal spark output through all engine operating ranges.
Distributor Pickup Coils
A Distributor Pick-Up Coil is responsible for sending a signal to the ignition control module to fire the the ignition coil at the precise time to achieve optimal engine performance and efficiency.
Related Ignition Sensors
These are inputs which make the ignition cycle possible on modern motor vehicles. Two of these sensors consist of the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. These sensors create an analog or digital signal which is used by the engine control module for proper ignition system and fuel injection timing.
The Ignition Switch is the component that “turns on” the vehicle and activates its main electrical system. The switch is controlled with a standard key-and-lock cylinder system, keyless dashboard button or other driver input.
