Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2013 Kia Optima LX 2.4
Everything is fine from the battery, starter, spark plugs, alternator...for some
reason all four Ignition coils are not getting anything when i test them with a
spark tester but wondering if all four go out at once. Car might sound like its
about to grab for half a second then just doenst do anything after. Any idea
what it might be?
