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

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
