    First and foremost, NEVER use a test light to check any computer related wiring on your car, it will BLOW the computer! Next, you need to find out whether your are getting a crank signal. you can check this by cranking your motor and checking the injector pulse with a noid light or injector test light, NOT a regular test light. If you have no injector pulse you will NEVER have spark! if no pulse go here and trace down the steps for engine cranks but won't start. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals
