Default 1997 HONDA CIVIC LX (Won't Start!)

Hi,

I have a 1997 civic lx that will not start. It has been in the 20's here. I have not had any problems with it resently. I drove it at night and parked it. In the morning it wouldn't start. Never had trouble starting before. I am checking the main relay, and distributor (ignition coil and ignition control module). The car cranks and it just keeps cranking and will not start. I changed the battery and hear the fuel pump when turning the car on (2 sec hum). Any ideas?

Click the Spark link in my signature. Is there bright white spark at all 4 spark plugs?

Any CEL codes?

Sorry forgot to mention... I am not getting any spark from the spark plugs or distributor... I tried using a ground and I got nothing.

Does the Blk/Yel wire attached to the coil have battery voltage? Have you verified that the timing belt is not snapped? If you answered yes to both, then resistance test the coil and have the ICM tested at an auto parts store.
