I drive the truck listed above k1500. My truck shut off on the road and threw a code 42. The engine will crank but I get no spark. I have replaced the ECM, the battery (which was dead), and every ignition component except for the distributor. A friend of mine thinks it is throwing a false code and I need to replace the distributor, but I want to get opinions from anyone I can before throwing more money at it.
