The spark signal is generated in the distributor. Most often this is a failure of the ignitor in the distributor.

Have you tested for tach signal? (crank the engine, does the tach needle bounce?)

..Had same problem just last week..(Code 01 when you pull your trouble codes)..mine turned out to be the ignition module in the Distributor...very costly at Auto Parts store..around $220 for the module or $250 for a rebuilt Distributor...get on EBay there's a guy selling Cardone Rebuilt Distributors(dual vacuum) still in the box for $25...

..passenger side in Engine bay on firewall you will find 3 connecters..1 Large green..1 Large yellow and "1 Small Green"...take a wire and place it into the SMALL Green Connector and ground it...turn key ON but DO NOT start the car..watch the check engine light it will go off than start blinking in dashes the stored codes to you..copy the codes down then go to the "search" on this page and write in "ECM CODES"..there you will find the meaning of the codes..

...ENSURE that you do not have the Turbo...the distributors are different from non-turbo and turbo engines...

Having been through this situation myself, I went to autozone for the igniter, got a warranty with it..don't remember if 1 year or lifetime .
That said , I should have done that from the beginning, had 4 or 5 Cardone dist thru (?, I'll think of it ) and all did the same thing, puked out in no time, made almost 9 months on 1 of them . Last time they just refunded my $ and called it a day. Cardone had some Really cheap igniters, 2 had a made in Hong Kong sticker on them . My experience anyhow . Good luck with it .

...Well that's certainly interesting Pappy..my 91 didn't have a distributor when I got it 11 years ago..got a Cardone Rebuilt at Advance and 27,000+ miles later it's still going strong...knock on wood...LoL..LoL..

Yeah, 11 years ago ! I'd like to know when they went with cheapened parts . Shoot, 11 years ago I was in better shape, haven't found a rebuild kit for me tho and would be leery if I did...foreign parts ya know  :P  Now to track down my 3500 rpm stutter, haven't gotten close to that yet...
Keep your eyes on the road folks , be safe

..well I got my two Cardone Rebuilt Distributors that a paid $25 a piece for..matched them up to the Cardone Rebuilt Distributor that I bought 11 years ago for my 91 and everything matches up including the numbers on the Ignition Module...nothing says Made in Hong Kong...put a New Rebuilt in the 94 and she fired right up...YES..!!!!...
