Unplug the coil connector, then put a test light in between the wo connectors then crank the engine and look for a flashing light, if no light disconnect the spout connector and retry, if you get a flashing light the the ECM is bad, if still no flashing light and you have already replaced the ignition module then you need to replace the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.
