Do you have keys programmed to the used ecm?

Looks like you have check most of the basics - but i don't see anything about coil packs. Better check those as well. Not likely that all went out, but likely that one is misbehaving. Should be able to see the voltage toggle with a meter on the input. Also check compression to make sure the combustion chamber is OK

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

try to get a wiring diagram it sounds like you have a rubbed thru or corroded wire in the circuit. haynes manual at autozone $20.00. Some local larger libraries have the wiring books also.

That is very interesting.If you have spark to the distributor means that the coil and a CP sensor are OK.Than you have to check ignition leeds and a spar plugs.Did you put correct rotor and a distributor cup?Check compression of the cilynders

Have you tried testing the ignition coil pack(s)? If this goes out then there wouldnt be any spark delivered to the plugs, this part is relatively cheap and is a common problem causing no spark.
