    Did you ever get this resolved? I just bought a used 6530 and it is doing the same thing connected up to a 12V power supply which is putting out 12.2V. Thick black and red connected and then when I connect the switched ignition wire to 12V+ the LED flashes twice then goes out.

    so this is not hooked to a car and using a battery and chassis grounds?

    Correct, I have the box connected to a 12V power supply just to see if it powers up and if I can connect to it with my laptop. No others wires are connected to anything besides the 2 main power wires and the smaller red that is supposed to go to switched ignition. Will it work differently actually in a car? Or on a battery? Thanks for the quick reply.

    Default Programable 6AL-2 low voltage

    I am also having the same low volt double flash with the heavy power wires hooked directly to the battery with 10 gauge wire and a 15 amp fuse. The ignition hot wire is plugged into the fuse box with a ignition hot plug that remains hot durring engine cranking. I have all the trigger wires taped off and still no spark, even with a new battery and the charger hooked up to it with a steady 12.6 volts DC. It won't event arc a plug straight off the coil doing the MSD spark test? What do I need to look at next?

    we have alot of customers, even try it with a battery charger with the
    same results...

    .we always recommend that you use a battery and chassis ground.

    I have mine grounded directly to the battery with the same 10 gauge wire.

    what does it do while running?

    I got the engine running with the stock HEI and tuned the carb. I swapped in a new battery and now I'm getting a spark off the coil doing the spark test on page 18 or 19. I'm going to try and put the MSD distribtor back in this weekend and see what happens?
