Check that the gap between the flywheel magnet and the module is correct, take the kill wire off the module, hook up a spark tester to the output of the module (spark plug removed), spin the flywheel - No spark means that the module is bad.

You mean P0202 , an what engine does yours have ? 2.6 L ,3.3 L , 3.6 L or 5.7 L ?
DTC P0201, P0202, P0203, P0204, P0205, or P0206
The engine control module (ECM) enables the appropriate fuel injector on the intake stroke for each cylinder. Ignition voltage is supplied directly to the fuel injectors. The ECM controls each fuel injector by grounding the control circuit via a solid state device called a driver. The ECM monitors the status of each driver. If the ECM detects an incorrect voltage for the commanded state of the driver, a fuel injector control DTC sets.
Test your fuel injector for cylinder #3 ! Do you know how to do that ?
You probably changed computers for nothing ! Check out this video on testing fuel injector circuits an checking computer driver that controls the injectors , Oh , by the way P0300 P0301 an P0302 are misfire codes , P0300 is a random misfire an the other two are for cylinders 1&2

Turn signal flasher location for 1994 Lincon Mk8

moz-screenshot-1.pngin this vehicle you will find the electronic flasher behind right side of the instrument panel. this is a solid state module that has a 3 wire connector the colors of the wires of that connector are light blue, red with white stripe, and black. the fuses that provides power to this module are fuse 10 (15 amps) and fuse 11 (10 amps). both located at the instrument panel fuse box. fuse 10 will be hot in run, and fuse 11 will be hot at all times. i also recommends that you test the multifuntion switch if you dont have turn signals i hope that this could help you

31cc yard machine garden cultivator. Won't get fire to the spark plug. Assume it's the solid state ignition. Any help?

Only 3 possibilities for no spark. First, are you using an inline spark tester to determine there is no spark? If so, here's your possibilities.
1. The on/off switch is shorted out.
2. There is a short in the wire(s) from the switch to the ignition module.
3. The module is faulty.
Dissassemble the engine cover far enough to access the module. There is a small wire that leads to a spade connector on the module. Disconnect this wire. Retest for spark. If you still have no spark, the module is faulty and must be replaced. If you now have spark, then the module is good, so back track the wires to the switch to determine if the wires are pinch or chaffed, or if the switch is stuck in the off position.

If you are not testing for spark with an inline tester, please, please go to Walmart or Pepboys or Autozone or NAPA or Sears and spend $7 to $10 on the will save you alot of trouble.

Good luck.

I have a 6hp tecumseh motor on a go kart that is not getting has been sitting for a whilei have cleaned the magnet behind cover but im not sure if it is the problem or something with the on/off...

First, try a new plug, then if still a problem ....

Assuming it's not pre-1985, then the ignition is solid state. To test - disconnect the 'kill' wire (usually black, but could be green or even red) coming from behind the cowling. Check for a spark. If OK, your problem is in the wiring. If still no spark, replace the coil.

If your engine IS ancient enough to have points, post back here and I'll advise.

I'm wanting to change points & condenser

At that age, it's highly likely that there aren't any! You don't say what engine is fitted, but if it's a Briggs or a Tecumseh, they went solid state in 1982. If that's the case, just replace the coil module.

Tecumseh HM80 engine, new carb, won't run

Not the solid state ignition. If this were the problem the engine wouldn't start at all. There is some adjustment needed to the carb but without more info, I'm not sure what.

Xerox C2424 problem (11,009:46 and 13,008.47)

The second fault is a result of the faulty electronics module. It is a print head heat related issue.
Question is, is the print head also faulty.
That electronics module is very expensive.
But the 11,009 specifically is a failure of the electronics module.
Have had those codes a couple of times.
Most likely the 50 volt source has failed, that maintains the print head heat.
A Drum Assembly thermal error has occurred. The following troubleshooting procedures apply to these errors:
