If you've replaced those items then i assume you've checked for 12v to make sure they're getting voltage so I'd look to the crank position sensor next. Coils wont fire untill they get information from the crank position sensor to know when to fire. Actually, in my experience, that little sensor fails more often than the ignitiin modules do. Good luck.

I can't find the sensor in my 1990 1.6l Celica. It's not on the block. I don't think it has one.
