Need HELP ASAP...please...

Hey guys/gals... I'm still new to the forum, so I appologize if this is in the wrong forum...but I need help bad!!

I gotta get this Bird running in 12 hours or I am screwed... its 1:30AM now...

Please help with any input.

Vehicle Info:

1994 Ford Thunderbird
4.6L V8


The vehicle was running very well, then... there's fuel but no spark. When vehicle is turned on but not running. A box in the engine compartment, that is located exactly in front of the air box is making a humm and also changes pitch in the noise when it is disturbed/moved. (See pic for reference...)

What is this box?

Any ideas why it won't start now?

Does this box have anything to do with lack of spark?

Real desperate here, gotta get this bird running. Thank you all in advance.

Please reference this same topic with further discussion and troubleshooting. I am still new to the forum and thought I would try this section too, thanks!

There is a duplicate post in the Club forum.

I agree with Sir William to check the crank position sensor.

To answer your first question it is called IRCM/CCRM it is a relay control module inside is the eec, fuel pump, wot, and fan control relays. If it is humming then I would check all powers & grounds to it. My guess would be you have a bad ground and the noise is the relays cycling off and on. This could be the cause of your lack of spark.
