My guess is the ignition module fails when hot. (code 42 is ignition module, code 36 is resolution signal)

It seems crb78 stated he installed a new ICM(Ignition Control Module).
If this is true, when you removed old ICM, did you thoroughly clean bracket's mounting surface[of old Thermal Grease]?
Be sure to scrape all old dried Thermal Grease from mounting surface, then wipe clean with Alcohol wettened rag.
And did you apply a nice even coating of fresh supplied Grease to backside of new ICM, before screwing it in place?
Included in new ICM's box, should have been a small packet of Thermal Grease.

Failing to apply coat of Thermal Grease to back of new ICM, will cause it to overheat & fail prematurely. :eek: = :eek:
And the two small screws that secure ICM to bracket should be tight. But, be careful, they're easily stripped if overtightened.
