Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done) and even if just for test purposes:

  • • ensure constant BAT+12V on the red wire to the ECM; and
  • • IGN+123V on the red/blue and red/green wires of the load cut relay;
  • • test for pulsating low voltage on the blue/yellow wire from the pulser coil; and
  • • pulsating voltage on the black/yellow wire from the ECM to the ignition coil.

In some instances, it may be necessary to check, clean improve the common ground. It may even need hardwiring a secondary ground line from the battery's - terminal to the frame, to the engine and to the harness ground line/green wire/s.
