Are there specific symptoms that indicate the ICM is faulty?
Can an ICM be tested somehow off the car to see if it's ok?

The Franchise-store test is only as good as the high school drop-out that runs it....
The last time I tried this in Autozone they could not remember where it was or how to run the thing. (The ICM failed, but I got no confidence out of the result, there were a dozen different ways to connect it to the testing machine).

Iffy coil, ICM & coil grounds, Tach Filter and more can kill ICM.
