What Ignition System Means:

The ignition system contains the components that supply spark to your vehicle's spark plugs. These include the battery, the coil, the distributor (including the cap and rotor), the spark plug wires, the ignition module, and the spark plugs themselves. Older cars also have ignition points and an ignition condensor.
