I HAVE SPENT MONEY ON THINGS THEY SAID IT COULD BE LIKE THE COIL PACKS AND THE MODULE THE COILS SIT ON. ITS THE ONLY CAR I HAVE AND I NEED TO GET BACK AN FORTH TO WORK. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP.

sounds like a broken wire or B+ Circuit, no power to cluster, and no spark. ANy sensors show any 5 volt or 12 volt signal?
