I would start with checking the igition coil pack for power. If there is power to circuit you may want to see if you could swap one with a known good coil pack. Any codes set?

When my battery was dead, I jump start my car.
When I conect the cables, in that moment, something is burn, and smoke has its shown, its only smoke come on, not a fire.
I dont know why its smoke come on, it was good conected (+/+ -/-).
When that happend I cant start my car!
And everthing working ok now, but no sparks to the plug.
I am from serbia, sorry if my english is bad. :D

Your english is good no worries. It is possiable that a voltage spike from jump starting the vehicle may have damaged a module. You found have to bring the vehicle to a repair facility that can read any codes set, and check powertrain control data.

I have one more question.
Did you mean ignition module,
which activates ignition coil?
Maybe that can burn?
