Check the power to the coil and if you have that then check for a trigger signal from the ICM to the coil, that is a pulsing ground signal so if your testing it with a test light it should flash when the key is in the crank position and the engine is turning over, if no flashing light replace the ignition module and the distributor pickup coil as a set. That should cure your no spark condition.
