Default RE: new ignition?

DA Ignitions do not have a history of going out. I would check your connections by un-plugging each one, then re-connect. Check your battery for charge buy putting a 1 AMP load on it. If all checks out, then insert a spark plug in your cap and check it for spark. You have to rotate the magnet rapidly back & forth through the sensor. DA Ignitions are setup to NOT fire when the magnet passes slowly, to prevent accidental ignition. Even if you dont's see a spark, listen to it to see if you "hear" it spark.

The most common problem encountered is that the sparkplug cap is very tight and you MUST have it pushied all the way down on the sparkplug. I've seen this way too many times! Make sure the cap is ALL THE WAY DOWN!
