Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
How about the coil? You should have voltage on the coil and if you ground the other side of the coil you should have spark on the middle wire on the cap. You need to check for voltage at the coil, and let me know what you find.

Also check the crank sensor and the ignition control module.
In my experience, the most common component failures, of the ignition system that cause a no start no spark condition are:Ignition coil, Crank sensor, Distributor cap.
crank sensor is on the bell housing of the transmission. http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=49654&cc=1100260&jsn=9
There should be a ground on one side of the coil, and power on the other. The ground is what triggers the coil. You could have a problem in the wiring causing the voltage to backfeed on the ground side.
Yes its in the distributor.

I do not get compensated for my time and resources unless you rate me.
Let me know how that goes after replacing the distributor. What size engine do you have?
There should be a sticker under the hood its an emissions sticker it should say the size.
The 8th digit of the vin will tell me the engine.
One side of the coil should have voltage the other should have ground and it should pulse ground, the ground is what fires the coil. If you have power on both sides while cranking you could have a short back feeding into the ground.
Here is a wiring diagram, Yes is could be a bad pcm but that is rare, more likely a wiring problem.
Run a jumper wire on the negative side of the coil to ground. see if you get a spark. Then check the ground signal out of the pcm connector at pin number 1
