What is an Ignition Condenser?
Ignition condensers are generally found on pre-80s vehicles. The ignition condenser controls the electric charge to start the engine. An ignition condenser has two windings. When you turn the key in the ignition, a current flows from the car's battery to the first winding, which creates an electrical charge that is then passed onto the second winding. The ignition coil then carries this current to start the car.
Ignition condensers protect the ignition system by reducing spikes in the voltage. And at the same time, absorbing the current and stops the whole ignition system from burning out.
The ignition condenser will fail eventually due to prolonged use and should be replaced immediately when it does.
