Hyster H40XMS:
Ignition module

Customer has a 2001 Hyster H40XMS. No start, no spark. No signal from ignition module. Distributor was corroded and rusty. Replaced distributor with OEM, replaced coil from NAPA. Engine ran 2 days. No spark, replaced coil with OEM. One day, no spark. No signal from module. Replaced ignition module with OEM. Ran one day. Ignition module out again. What could be taking out ignition module?

Also check your grounds. Make sure the engine is grounded to the chassis & the chassis is grounded to the battery. I've seen some short cuts where a ground gets left out which can cause issues

Customers love technology- until they have to pay to fix it!
What engine is it?? Mazda M420G probably. Check your charging voltage I've seen the alternators on these giving out over 16Volts on a poor battery that would take out the module. Is the module genuine from hyster or some crappy oem (TVH) like part

Fact of the week
The concept of Daylight Saving Time (DST) was first implemented in Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada in 1908. The first proposal for DST, however, came in 1895 from New Zealand entomologist George Hudson who valued extra daylight so that he could hunt bugs after work during the summer months. He suggested a two-hour daylight-saving shift.
