Customer Question

hello, i have a 1998 cadillac eldorado, started it up and quit about 10 seconds later. Did some checks and there is no spark, rolls over and everything else works. Had the ignition control mod tested and failed test, bought new one and still no spark, checked all fuses, still checking things. I must be missing something somewhere, can you help.Thanks Brian
