Question about 1999 Chevrolet Lumina
Checked purple ignition wire with test light..test light flashes, but no constant power
It kinda sounds like it might be your car's computer that is something like a ECM. A bad coil pack could do same thing because with it being fuel injected that has no timing adjustment. What ever you do is don't try putting fuel into fuel jets as that will kill your engine computer. Read the Diagnostic Code Reader for a fault code that would provide area causing this problem.

You said the the 2 cylinders in the middle has no fire. That will be 2 & 3. It has 2 coil packs. One runs 1 & 4 the other runs 2 & 3. Check the coil pack that runs 2 & 3....The firing order is 1,3,4,2... It runs because it hits,miss,hits,miss....just enough to keep it running....

because aaa can jump start it and you can't sounds like maybe the battery cables are curroided (dirty)
in-between the battery post and the clamps, clean the battery terminals and charge your battery as a loose conection can run down even a new battery
