Really need help with my VL not starting

Ive done multiple searches and to no avail.
My VL cut out whilst driving and now wont start doesnt have spark. Now ive changed cas with a new one and also tried one out of a running car timing was all spot on ive put new leads changed coil,power transistor also tried another computer aswell and still nothing ive checked all connections everything seems good and clean. Im really stumped on it one thing ive noticed now is the LED's on the computer do not flash or stay on whilst the car is being cranked are they meant to stay on or flash? Any one have any ideas or have had this problem?

Check your ignition barrel.

Wiggle it while attempting to start it and see if it helps, it did for me and it was the cause for my VL not starting.

have you tried the yellow plugged coolant temp sensor?

i bumped mine the other day and it unclipped itself and tried starting it and wouldnt start for the life of me....

pop the bonnet and had a quick look the yellow plug was just sticking up enough to not make contact, pushed it down and it started as usual
