Customer Question
Hi, I have an...

Hi, I have an 87 Grand Wagoneer which seems to be going through ignition modules very often. Is there something that I can do to upgrade the ignition system to HEI or the like?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery lately?

The battery is new

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Wagoneer yourself? What have you tried so far?

The car will turn over, but will not start. I use an ignition bypass system and it starts right up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really
