My experience with Bosch ignition system (found on european cars) is the spark control is sent by the ignition module. The ignition module has to receive an input usually from a crankshaft sensor. This is usually near the crankshaft pulley on many cars. I am currently working on a 04 Toyota RAV4 and it has exactly that. If your sensor wiring gets loose or a bad wire then the computer won't signal for spark. This may not be your problem but it sounds like it probably is.
(By the way on my Alfa Romeo it is a sensor around the bell housing that senses the teeth on the flywheel) Good luck!

I had same problem and it turned out to be the "Spark Generator(module)" which was size of small wallet and can be seen under the hood in plain sight. Parts store price was $300-400. Salvage yard had box full of used ones @ $20-30 a piece.
