I have no spark to the cylinder heads and there is no power to the distributor itself whatsoever when checked with a test light. The timing belt is in-tact and the rotor is rotating properly. All the relays relating to the ignition system have been tested and are functioning to specification. What else could it be? Is a faulty ignition switch capable of causing these symptoms?

Disconnect electrical harness to the distributor. Check power to the harness. If there is power, check coil primary resistance between the 2 pins on the distributor. Resistance should be between 0.6 - 0.8 Ohms. Then, measure secondary resistance between the coil tower to both pins, of course one at a time. Resistance should be between 12 - 18 kOhms. If numbers aren't within specs, replace distributor assembly.
