Could be an ignition system problem-remove a plugwire or so-ground it to the engine while being crank over look for a spark-do you have spark? If not check the distributor pick-up or a crankshaft position sensor. What might be happening here is that the computer might not be getting a crank signal to activate the injector/s. In other words the computer don't know whether the engine is turning or what to give it fuel.

Good Luck

I had a similar problem with my 91 cougar and it turned out to be a shorted out wire just 2-3 inches from the cylinoid. Use a volt meter to check continuity of all cylinoid wires. (Expecialy if you have a green wire that splits in to 2 or more) this also causes the altinator to not charge the battery
