In searching round the forum, it looks like the '84-86 GTV6s and early Milanos have their ignition advance controlled by a separate electronic module, not by a mechanical advance unit inside the distributor. (I've got an '84.)

So... where IS this thing? The Milano manual I've got shows it to be under the right end of the dashboard, but I don't see anything like it in the same position on my GTV6.

What's it look like? How's it marked? Does anyone have a photo of it?

Help!

Thanks!

its a black box about 5"X3"X2" with a decently beefy connector on it. IF your car has a silver aluminum box near the coil (which has ballast resistors near it as well) you will not have the ignition advance box...im lead to believe some (early?) of the 84's had the old style...


just guessing, but I was under the understanding that its up near where the mileage counter box and the exhaust warning module lived in the older <84 cars?? so thats just to the right and above the (non existent) glove box. ive never seen a tropic-aire car in the flesh so im not sure if all that space is occupied or not.
