I am using a 30002. I purchased a MSD 85501 Magnetic Trigger-Locked Advance, installed it. Connected black wire to neg connection on coil. When I first installed the system it worked great but I wanted to take advantage of the timing control. I now have no spark. Would it be the ECU? I am baffled.. The coil tests good.. Can I test the FiTeck ECU timing control?
Check your wiring to diagram 13 on the instructions. If you are hooked up correct the next step is to change the 2wire VR+coil in engine setup to VR Coil. After setting to VR coil you need to key off for 30 seconds.
If you are still having issues please give us a phone call at 951-340-2624.
Can a distributor that has been converted to Pertronix Ignitor 3 be controlled by a GO 600 EFI? I want to buy this system for my 1964 lincoln continental. It has a 430 MEL V8. I have not found any aftermarket distributors for that motor.
You will need a 2-wire magnetic pickup distributor such as a MSD Pro Billet or equivalent. Your Ignitor 3 will not work.
hi will the new msd e curve distributor work with this feature to control nitrous ,timing retard
This distributor will NOT work with timing control. You will need a 2-wire magnetic pickup distributor like a MSD Pro Billet.
I just installed the 30001 with a locked out MSD distributor, MSD Blaster 2 coil, no MSD box. I went through the setup screen. it cranks but will not start, I am getting a code P0335 “RPM NOISE”, can you advise please? Thanks
RPM noise is isolated to the ignition system. You need to check your distributor, coil, spark plug wires, and wiring of the ignition system. Common issues would be arcing spark plug wires or low voltage to the coil.
I’m running the timing control option with a locked-out distributor & MSD 6AL. Can’t get it to fire. It’s getting fuel. Distributor ran great with carburetor, but tested pick-up after locking it out just to be sure. MSD tests good if I trigger white-wire to ground. Can’t get spark to trigger if I jump the 2-wire cable to the throttle-body. RPM shows good on “dashboard” during cranking. Just can’t get her to start up.
Double check that your tach input selection on engine setup is set to VR-coil. Also be sure that you have the distributor base timing setting lower that idle timing as this can make a no spark issue.
Feel free to call us for assistance on your setup. 951-340-2624
i did something wrong it wont let me edit the 2 wire coil or tach it is in 2wire and wont start and no tach signal on cranking
Use the joystick on the handheld (button to right or screen) and click is left or right when you have the tach or 2-wire field highlighted.
Is it okay to use a ballast resistor coil when using the timing control on the Fitech?
Any issues with driving the FiTech and a tach off of the MSD-6AL tach signal at the same time. I want to just tee off the MSD to both. Tach is an Auto Meter 5″ with shift light. It’s currently hooked up to the MSD and working fine. thanks!
Yes. You can run both the FiTech tach input and the Auto Meter tach in at the same time.
For anyone wondering, an MSD Flying Magnet crank trigger will run the timing control, but you’ll need to shorten the air gap down to .030 or so, and reverse the pickup wires, I.E.: purple to green, and green to purple. Figured this out today. With the wires not reversed, the handheld will show cranking rpm at 150, and will not send a signal to fire a coil or cdi box. Hopefully this’ll save somebody else some trouble, hah.
Could you please advise me on what distributor to use for the timing control feature, I have a 1972 Trans am 455 and have purchased a supercharger and your 1200hp power adder. Also does the Fitech work the same as a vacuum advance distributor under light cruise conditions? Thanks Jay
Timing control allows you to build your own ignition curve in the EFI. It can be adjusted based on RPM and vacuum.
You will need to get a 2-wire magnetic pickup distributor to use timing control.
Can i use a pertronix ignitor 3 if not using the ignition control option? It is a 2 wire
It has 2-wires but they go to the coil direct. The pertronix 3 is a complete module that will not work with timing control. We are after the magnetic pickup only from the distributor.
Will this system work with the Ford TFI ignition?
Our system works with a magnetic pickup 2-wire distributor. It will NOT work with a Ford TFI.
I have the 30002 and 40003 Fuel Command. I am getting a P0335 code for RPM signal. I am using an older Mallory Unilite distributor with their coil. It is running the ballast resistor. I have the blue wire connected to the negative side of the coil. It will fire, but quit running immediately. Does this type of ignition system need to be changed?
The ballast resistor is the issue. You will need to get an ignition that supplies 12 volts to the coil. You may try a tach adpater before this but we have not tested with one.
If I use a MSD #8577 distributor in my 460 Ford, I can run your timing control instead of a ignition box?
This distributor will work. You will also need pt# 84211. It can be ran with or without a cdi box. Look at our instructions for diagrams on the wiring setup
