Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Since you fitted all new parts you may have a bad coil. We can test the coil and module with a test light. First make sure you have power at the white/pink wire at the coil and the white/pink at the amplifier module and also make sure you have ground at the amplifier module on the black wire. If you do then go to the negative side of the coil with you test light and look for a blinking light. Hook the clip of the test light to the positive side of the coil and probe the white/black wire.
