BTW next time include engine size, 2.0,2.9,2.3??
I would say start with ignition control module on side of dist. Most auto stores can can test for free. Do you remember if accidently hit anytime while working. Dont get fustrated yet. If started and ran before, most likely a simply solution.

If all the coils are giving spark now,then you moat likely have gas fouled plugs now,so change them out with new ones,all 8 of them.If you do not have spark on all plug wires,pull the timing belt cover,and align the cam shaft and the cam,to see if the belt has jumped.If It hasn`t,replace the crankshaft sensor.

Testimonial: "makes sense...no answer on reset...assume not necessary...will report back when I obtain a start. All plugs fouled...some filthy with dirt!"
SOURCE: no spark, no start
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing... Spark / Fuel / Compression
All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.
Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.
Some Anti-Theft or system alarm there?
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I had a head gasket going when I have a rough idle. Just weeping coolant past the number 1 cylinder. When I pulled the head the piston was all shiny and steam cleaned. $500 dollars all good now.
