No spark at the plugs replaced ignition pack but no results thisis a 1992 pontiac sunbird 2.0l se

electric ignition module is bad, or maybe the safety shutdown relay, also check to see if the timing belt has snapped, it happened to me, lol replaced plugs, wires, coil, ignition module, and turned out to be the timing belt had snapped causing the safety shutdown relay to shut off power to the coil and fuel pump, good luck :)

Hello,i have a Pontiac Sunbird-93 that has no power to the coils.The ecm is new,any ideas?

Check the connection to the ignition module and the module it self. The other thing to keep in mind is the crank and cam shaft sensor's. if the sensor's are bad, the ecm will not know when to activate the coils to the right spark plugs from the module. 
So I suspect the coil assembly is the problem. This car has what is called the DIS, Direct Ignition System It contains 2 coils along with the ignition module. I suspect that the one coil must control plugs 1 & 4. The DIS gets a reference signal from the cam position sensor, which then in turn communicates with the ECM or computer control module. From what I''ve read below 400 rpm the DIS controls the timing and above 400 the ECM Regulates timing. Good luck and hope this helps. keep in mind the module is around $200.00 so try to do the salvage yard for around $35.00 and have it tested at like Auto Zone free of charge, and if it's bad the salvage yard will credit you or you can pick an other one. 

Good luck and and hope this helps.
