Your ignition plays essentially two roles in your car. First of all and most importantly, your ignition's chief job is getting your vehicle started in the first place by providing the initial combustion that get your engine turning. In the case of a petrol engine, your ignition also provides the spark associated with igniting the fuel/air mixture in your engine's cylinders. Obviously, this is vital to keep you moving.
In order to provide this spark, your ignition system runs from your battery all the way through to your combustion chamber, carrying the charge each step of the way. The ignition coil is the first port of call for this, which essentially acts as a transformer to convert the battery's low voltage into the power required to ignite your engine. The firing of this is controlled by the ignition module, as it works in sync with your engine's rotation.
The current is then fed into your distributor, which distributes the charge to each individual spark plug as the cam inside rotates. As the cam hits the point of contact for each individual spark plug, the charge is sent down the ignition leads which connect the spark plug to the distributor, causing them to fire.
The ignition system is slightly different in a diesel powered car, as they don't require the use of spark plugs to make the engine fire (it relies on compression instead), for this reason, diesel ignition systems use a glow plug that heats up and provides the first combustion of the diesel fuel, getting it turning and compressing by itself.
