I flat out hate the Magnavox ignition system'* on the older 3800'*.
All 4 of our 1989-1990 3800'* have had their Magnavox ignition systems fail in the past 13 months.
Last night when I picked the 89 Lesabre up from getting the new ps axle installed the car would not start. Scanned and got codes 13 and 44. Replaced the o2 sensor with a Standard igniton unit to get by until I get the Delco AFS-20 I just ordered gets here and still it will not start.
Checked the plugs and they are a little brown, but not bad although I do intend to swap in the Autolite 605'* that I have here somewhere.
To get to the point, will the ignition system with coil packs from my 1997 SSE parts car bolt right and connect into place as a functioning upgrade in the 89 Lesabre? I'm getting sick of using my brothers 1990 Chrysler 5th Avenue, and the Dippy is needing ins and tabs, as well as a tune up before it'* streetable (hasn't been driven in 3 yrs).
