Autolite Expands Its Line of Ignition Wires and Insulator Boots

With 22 new SKUs, Autolite Professional Series Wire Sets are designed for use in distributorless ignition systems.

DANBURY, Conn. — Honeywell Consumer Products Group’s Autolite brand is introducing 44 new part numbers for its line of ignition wires and insulator boots.
With 22 new SKUs, Autolite Professional Series Wire Sets are designed for use in distributorless ignition systems. They meet or exceed OES design requirements by providing the necessary silicone content, boot design and accessories (i.e. retainer clip, heat shield and extension bases) where required. The high-tech nylon reinforcement in the wire provides increased terminal retention and improved jacket adhesion. The new SKUs will increase the Autolite brand’s coverage to 98 percent of all vehicles on the road that require ignition wires.
The brand has also increased its insulator boot offerings. Coil On Plug (COP) ignition systems are on the rise and the Autolite Professional Series Coil On Plug insulator boots will meet increasing demand in this fast growing parts replacement category. The Autolite COP insulator boots feature durable silicone rubber EPDM boots, as well as contact springs, terminals and resistors for specific applications.  
“By 2010, about 80 percent of new passenger vehicles will leave the factory with COP technology. The additional part numbers will help provide professional technicians with the parts needed for carrying out service and repair on now aging COP systems,” said Rick Widden, vice president, Ignition and Filtration for Honeywell CPG. “We now have coverage for approximately 70 percent of the vehicles on the road today that feature COP technology.”
