    Found solution for 85 Supra Ignition Control Module

    Since it is getting hard to find an 85 Supra ingniter, I wanted to share/document a solution I tried and worked. You can still purchase the igniter for the 86 Supra, 3.0L. It is also the model used in the 92 Cressida. You will find it listened as:

    Standard Motor Products LX-837 Ignition Control Module

    or

    AIRTEX/WELLS 6H1318

    You will need to save your old wire harnes form your 85 igniter. Unsolder it and swap it with the new igniter. By looking at the two wires that go to the coil from old to new, you can figure out how the old harnes attaches to the new module. The new module has one less wire. From what I can figure, this is the wire that you short to get ignition failure codes for when you are trouble shooting.

    I've had this fix for two years now with no problems.

    This is so awesome to know now, I'm bringing my Supra home tomorrow and was worried about what I would do if the igniter has gone bad, which seems to be pretty common

    It is expensive, but I tried this solution after finding just one used 85 igniter from a wrecker in Florida. It cost me $300.00 and was DOA. He would not give me my money back. As with all wreckers, electronics are not guaranteed, so you are taking a risk. And, my car was down for several months until I tried the 86 igniter.
