Q: The car over heated and now i don't have spark. 2005 Saturn Ion

asked by on

When my radiator blew the car overheated, and now since the car overheated i had to put my scanner on it. It read ICM the code was P06030 and i looked it up online and it said ECM for that code. I am lost please help.

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

If this occurred right after the engine overheated then the excessive heat may have damaged the computer or it may have a circuit issue. I would typically need to test the circuit to see if there is voltage present. It is also possible that the ignition system was damaged during the overheat. I would need to get a little more in depth with the scan tool to see what the sensors are reading to make sure that nothing is missing in the sensor readings.
