Ignition Module

Post by Ian_Fearn » Mon May 01, 2006 9:38 pm

Jonkw answered this question for me some time ago but hopefully somebody can answer is for me again.

The Motronic GTi 8v ignition module is a 7 pin unit. Some time ago i had one fail and bought the 7pin unit off GSF, part number N92354.

This turned out to be the wrong part. Does anybody know if the ignition module should be part number N92352, the one listed for an XM 2.0 or late model 1.8, 2.0 ZX?

I've not got either Bosch or Citroen part number.

When my last one failed i quoted the number off my ignition module to a bosch centre who told me that part number didnt exist.

The 'N' numbers are GSF numbers.

GSF?? PAH! :lol:

You wants one of these:

Bosch P/N....0 227 100 123....I believe its a common one, my 16v uses it.

Also used on loads of other cars, XM 2.0i, Alfa Romeo 33 1.5, Vauxhall Chavalier and Ashtray 1.4....list goes on.

Pretty sure thats what you want.

I thought the BX 16v uses the 6 pin module???

I bought a 7 pin one from GSF, the one thats listed for a BX but it didnt work.

I ended up getting one from a local Cit specialist who knew which one i needed but charged rather a lot for it.

Yeah some do, all models can use a 7pin according to Bosch, the extras are rendered useless. They all use the same plugs AFAIK, but whether they have metal contacts in or not depends on the model of car...mine only has 5wires and one is an earth.
The one above is the common application, but I guess it doesn't go for every vehicle....I haven't checked PR net yet so it might reveal all on there.

Cheers

Having looked on PR net, if your car has the dizzy cap assembly, its the same as the 16v, which in turn is the same as most models and is the number I listed above. Citroen P/N: 5945 48

If you've got the black coil pack (which I suspect you do) then you want Citroen P/N: 5945 54.

The Bosch number to this is 0 227 100 200.

Looks the same, but is different and the only BX it is fitted to, is the GTi with coil pack ignition. (xu9j2)

It does fit some XM 2.0i's....XU10J2 type with coil pack ign. Also fits ZX 1.9 Volcane with coil pack, and ZX 16v.

Plus AX GTi with catalyst, early Xantia 2.0i 16v VSX and the rare Synergies with the 2.0 CT turbo lump....if you ever see one!

Aswell as many other makes of car....

Hope that helps

Whereabouts on the Gti is this module found, I may have one on my Hurricane although much of the ignition has already gone to another BX fanatic?

It is located underneath the right hand side of the inlet manifold. Any chance you could have a look at your Hurricane for me???

To be honest i'd buy ALL the fuel injection parts off your Hurricane.

Ian I had a squiz but as I suspected only it's counterpart that it plugs into is there :( . I don't have a clue about fuel injection and my Haynes has gone awol so I'm not sure which bits are relevant :?. There is a sort of rail across the front of the engine which I assume is to do with the injectors, the whole thing is intact as is the distributor unit. Is that lot of any use to you?
