Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

I have seen several engine computers loose coil drivers. The coils draw too much current and cause the drivers to fail. Ask him more specifically if there is no ground pulse from the computer to the coils. Also ask him if the coils all are receiving voltage. If that is the issue then I would have no problem believing him. Usually the repair is to replace the engine computer and all of the ignition coils.
