95 GT cranks but no spark

ok yesterday i was driving, and all of a sudden the car dies, i keep trying to restart it but nothing happens, had to get it towed home wich was a mistake i should of just had it towed to the shop, but i replaced the ignition control module, that did nothing, replaced dizzy that did nothing i installed it correctly, checked my new coil, tried out my other computer, i am just geting no spark at all, i checked it from the coil, and from the #1 plug, and absolutely no spark, I am getting fuel for sure, but no spark, checked every single fuse and relay they are all good, I am left clueless i don't know if a bad ignition switch can be anything, or if somehow one of my grounds came loose, but i have tried everything in the book and no luck at all what should i do ??????????????? this is really getting me angry, because this is my daily driver and i need to get around place to place. edit: oh and the cap rotor plugs and wires and coil are only a month old, and also forgot to put i bypassed the msd box and that did nothing at all either.

I would check the ignition switch, pretty easy swap.

Put the old coil back in and try it. If you have no spark at the coil wire it sounds like it crapped out. Had that happen to me once.

The PIP in the distributor is what signals the coil to fire. If you are not getting spark that is where I would start. Do you know for sure the distributor you put in to test is working? The wiggle test might be in order too. While you have someone crank the engine for you wiggle the wiring where it goes through the distributor. They are notorious for causing problems. I have replaced the one in my MSD once already, and have a spare MSD in the garage for the next time.... If you are positive the dis is good you should be able to pull the coil connector and check it for voltage while cranking. For what it's worth.

It sounds like the ignition module. The motor will still crank but won't start.

ok yeah the pip in the new distributor is also brand new, and yeah i have the checklist but thanks, and ok so now what i should do is pull the connector connecting to the coil, and see how much voltage is getting to it, how many volts should it get, and psst-gt i already tried to replace the ignition control module, and no luck with it.
