Default 78 new Ultima ignition problems

Installed the new Ultima. Got 14 miles and she backfired, and stalled. Now it wont start. Green and red lights quickly flash and a clicking happens when trying to start. Retimed it, re wired, etc. Any ideas?

would have to check my library but does the leds quit after key cycle? off the top, the ultima will go into over current protection so check your paper work. if it is, check all wiring and make sure you have the correct coil. if all is good, could be the module.

Something else is happening here. Horn and lights went dead. Have had it on a trickle charger all night. Starts right up now. But... Battery is not getting to full charge and something is draining the battery. Im guessing she stalled the other day due to losing juice on the ride. Bad generator? How to know?
