probably the crank shaft sensor ''' go to the ignition module.. look on the drivers side fot a plug that has 2 wires ~ disconnect the connection and put a meter across the wires (ohms) in the cable then have a friend crank the engine // you should see the meter readings pulse as the crank shaft passes the pick-up ''if not then trace the cable down to the underside of engine ..you should see where it's mounted
