IGT Signal

The primary coil current flow is controlled by the ECM through the Ignition Timing (IGT) signal. The IGT signal is a voltage signal that turns on/off the main transistor in the igniter. When IGT signal voltage drops to 0 volts, the transistor in the igniter turns off. When the current in the primary coil is turned off, the rapidly collapsing magnetic field induces a high voltage in the secondary coil. If the voltage is high enough to overcome the resistance in the secondary circuit, there will be a spark at the spark plug.
