Because you do not have spark, You might have a bad crank sensor. TO check the crank sensor all u have to do is turn the key on and crank. The check engine should normally come on, then go off when cranking. The computer turns off the check engine light when it recognizes the crank signal. So if u have a bad crank sensor, the computer will never turn off the check engine light when cranking! If thats the case its time to replace the sensor!
