I got a code 42, a code I have never gotten before. This happened this morning. It's cold and damp outside. The Fiero started a little rough and ran rough while the SES light was on, but never felt like it was going to stall. I let it warm up like this for about 5 minutes and then switched the car off and restarted it, which then it ran perfectly and Idled perfectly (well as perfectly as a 20yr old car will idle). This code 42 is for electronic spark control. I have a new coil, module, plugs, cap roter. The area I'm really looking at is perhaps a pick up coil. The connectors seem awful btittle and it's probable the same pick up coil from 1984.
Has anybody else had experience with this code? I've replaced a pick up coil on my GT, but the distributor is harder to get at on my coup and I've been putting off pulling it.

Thanx,

Rick

Yep....definitely replace the PU coil and I'd replace the module too cause the PU coil connections prob shorted and blew the module or damaged it. Good luck!\
