ok it is a single pickup coil in the dist and the dist is new what part of the didt is the sensor
Dodge Mechanic: xsvector, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Electronic ignition with distributor is as follows:

Crank or cam angle position sensor and a power transistor (ignition module) is required to trigger the actual field collapse of the primary coil winding that generates the high voltage spark source in the first place. (handled by mechanical switch called points in full mechanical ignition).

Mechanical distributor then routes the high voltage discharge from the single secondary coil to the appropriate cylinder. So the rotor may be mechanically lined up with the right cylinder, but the electronics are what actually detect crank position and fire off the spark.

The only reason you have a distributor in a electronic ignition system is because you only have one coil. Typically you don't have a direct crank position sensor in this case, but a cam position sensor and reluctor wheel within the distributor housing in the same location that would normally house points, along with wires coming out of the distributor base connecting to the ignition module.
