Have you checked the fuse's? Could have blown an ignition fuse, if that checks good then check for power to the coil + side, if you have voltage there with the key on and while cranking then check for a coil trigger signal by unplugging the coil + and - and put the test light between the two, then crank it over and watch for a flashing light, if you have a flashing light then replace the coil, no flashing light, then either the module/pickup coil is bad or you have a broken wiring in the ignition circuit.
