994 buick century started fine for 1 yr of use then one day wouldent start, you can hear the fuel pump prime when keyed on, I switched around the relays in the front each time trying the engine and no luck, then I charged the battery tht had gone dead from cranking. Once charged I pulled number one plug and tried to get a spark, I had my friend turn it over and it started t sputter so I stopped the test and put the no 1 plug back in. Started car and it started right up, since I had switched some of the relays I had my friend work the internal controls to see what worked and as soon as she turned the wipers on the car died. No spark at plug so I talked with the autozone guy that told me to bring in my ignition control module for testing, it was bad so I bought new one. Installed and started right up, again I cycled through the internal electronics and the wiper and car seemed fine then after about 1 min it died out and now no spark again and I believe it killed the new ignition module? And probably the old one whats going on

A defective CPS will cause a no spark condition.
