Loss of spark (and injector pulse) may be due to a shorted sensor, like the engine coolant temp sensor or the throttle position sensor. This should be visible on a voltmeter. It draws the 5.0 volt sensor reference voltage down too low for the computer to send a spark signal. If you don't have an ohm meter, try disconnectiong sensors one by one, and see if the engine gets spark. Then you'rve found the shorted sensor causing the problem.
No luck, try a Ford or Mazda specialist.
