Why did you change the fuel solenoid if the problem is no spark? What about fuel then, do you got fuel to the crank case?

If you got spark problems, change the plug and walk yourself backwards with a multimeter from there..
It may also be worth it to check in with you local supplier to hook a computer up to it..

Bypassing the M-tronic fuel/spark would be like putting a carburetor on a brand new Volvo. Plain silly. The fact that you asked this raises a lot of questions.

What is the serial number of it?
