Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Yes the ignition coil could have gone bad and is no longer firing to the plug. An easy way to check this is to unhook the small wire that is going to the coil and crank the engine, if you have spark then you know that the problem is in the switch or wiring, if you still have no spark then the coil has gone bad.
