I did check all the fuse. The sparks not yet. How could i check that.

Hello again,

You need to remove the cable getting to the spark plug, and insert a screwdriver inside, and the screwdriver need to be close to a ground point, (valve cover should do), and have someone start the engine, you should see spark from jumping from the screwdriver to the valve cover. I would remove the spark plugs while at it, make sure they are good.

Kindly get back to me with the results, so we proceed accordingly.
