Hello, thanks for posting here

The check engine light not turning on at all means the computer is not getting any power and neither is the coil and igniter, open the check connector under the hood and see if you are getting voltage at the B+ terminal with the key on, then check for voltage at the fuel injectors, the black red wires should have 12 volts. The black/red wire to the distributor also has to have 12 volts with key on, let me know if any of these voltages are missing.
