Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow
A complete lack of spark in a modern car can be any of the following:
-Coil (or coil pack)
-Cap / Rotor (or the screw holding the rotor down)
-Main or Ignition Relay
-Timing Belt Broken
-Distributor Gear sheared off
-Shorted or Open wiring fault
-Theft Deterrent System
-PCM / Computer
You need to find the proper test procedures for your vehicle (buy a shop manual) and work your way down the list until you find the broken part.

SOURCE: motor will turn over but
to be more precise,would really need to know the model of engine;4G64,6A11,6A12 etc.should be on vehicle ID badge.the 4 denotes a 4 cylinder,6 is V6,the earlier models have an external coil,or coil pack,the later models have the coil either inside the distributor under the cap.if external coil,remove the coil HT lead that runs to the cap from the cap,place near an area that is earthed and crank engine,should see a spark jump to the metal object.
Both early and later models run modules inside distributors.these often fail.Either can replace them or just get a second hand dizzy complete
Also crank engine with cap off and ensure that rotor is turning.I assume that this one fits into the end of cam at one end of the head,so this should not be a problem,but still check.the more that we find that is ok,the closer we get to what isnt.
hope this helps or get back with some more info and will endeavour to pinpoint problem.
