Did you check all of the fuses? There is a 15 amp EFI fuse that powers the ECU. If it is good, check for power with the key ON at the EFI relay in the fuse panel under thew hood. This is where the EFI fuse is located also. You should have power in the EFI fuse socket and power in 2 of the EFI relay sockets.

Pull the EFI relay out. With a test light or DC voltmeter, check for power in all of the sockets with the key on. You should have power in 2 of the 4 cavities.

I would take the front cover off and inspect the toothed gear that the crank position sensor 'reads'. If this device is broken, you will have no spark pulse to the computer.
