MY CAR ISNT GETTING SPARK.

I have a 1998 VW Jetta. Ive had it for a couple of months & yesterday it crapped out on me. Then I figured that I have no spark. What could be my problem?

No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

Coil is getting power, Computer works. I plugged the DMM in & it gave me the code PO322 and told me the crank sensor was bad so I changed the sensor and I still dont have spark. What else could it be?

Test the coil's primary and secondary winding resistances

Where is the ignition control module?

Check and test the ignition coil power output stage and camshaft sensor in the distributor.
