Q: What is the best way to test the "hall effect" distributor? on 1994 Mazda Protege

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
1994 Mazda Protege LX Sedan 1.8L DOHC. I just put plugs, wires, cap & rotor on it, changed the oil and replaced a small vac hose (air intake hose to val cover). Ran wonderful for two days and still running great last night pulled out of a parking lot and it just died. No start,towed home started troubleshooting. No Spark and no fuel. Coil had proper resistence as per chilton manual ran test battery positive to neg side of coil,cranked but no light. Also jumped old OBD1 module F/P to ground and relay kicked and fuel pump fired right up. Sooooo now where do I start on the Distributor above. (noticed MIL lamp is not operating as I tried jump 10 pin in diag box to check code as I do not have an OBD1 scanner). All guidance appreciated.

unfortunately, you have to have a sensor tester to verify the hall effect sensor of the distributor. you can purchase a basic sensor tester from KAL equipment for around $100 I believe
