Check all of your wiring to everywhere. Make sure that everything's hot with a voltmeter.

Doc here,

Sounds like it could be one of to possible Failures, the TFI module, or the Hall Effect Vane Switch (Magnetic Pickup) .

The module you should be able to pull and have tested at your local auto zombie..

The Hall effect device requires pulling the dizzy, and disassembling the center shaft to replace the unit. Those Dizzy's are totally rebuild able, so you need not buy a new one unless the metal parts are actually past runout.

Doc

we had that problem in my truck a while back. The contact point on the distributor had fallen off.

If all the hardware is good, then check the wiring harness that runs under the accumulator. It has all the vital wiring for the ignition system, PCM, and TCM. It is a common point for chaffing and general trouble.

This may sound trivial but I actually had a car NOT start once to due a crappy rotor, certainly worth replacing
