Doc here,

First you have No spark, Check power to your red wires to the box and might be losing primary ignition during cranking, and may require a secondary ignition from the "I" terminal on the solenoid..

Next go here:

Go BACK to the home page and select the troubleshooting data for your system..

That should help a bit..
