May be helpful, first is As Wired now, second As Proposed. I can see trouble with the 5v limit with the BCS.

Here is how I have the ground connected. It is pretty sloppy as we are just testing. Also, this may be a non issue when gas is hooked up. It seems to run the spark for 5 to 10 seconds before the PID's go nuts.

Edit
I forgot to mention after this I tried to connect the ground bus to a screw on the frame thinking the connection with the gas manifold wasn't good enough. I had the same thing happen

Still no luck. Also, I stated before that removing the copper gas line fixes the issue. It makes it better (doesn't jump around near as often) but still will every once in a while. I am wondering if this is just a problem with the Aubers. I am assuming when I get gas hooked up that it will call for spark once or twice and then stop. Am I chasing a problem that doesn't need fixed? Can anyone confirm their system doesn't do this with the gas turned off?

Ground from controller to frame

Ground from module to igniter

The ferrite sleeves worked. I also had to hook the ground up in this manner.
Igniter to ignition module and also gas controller to frame.
Thanks for all your help

So I hate to dig up an old thread (Not really if it gets results \"\" ), but I'm curious if this PID would work as a more affordable option.

I assume it'd be wired like in this photo?
