Check your ctrl lamp fuse under the steering wheel fuse cover.

Have you checked for power at the coil and PIP signal at TFI module on dizzy?

hi, welcome to fordmods,

check on the coil plug where the wiring goes onto the coil, sometimes one wire will come loose and pull out of the plug on the loom. possibly brown relay gone under coolant header tanks too.
failing that, have u checked for fuel, when u turn the ign on can u hear the fuel pump prime?

check fuel filter, fuel pump and the relay (green one under the coolant header tank)

Also check the earth wire that bolts onto the block next to the dizzy. A bad connection and it won't fire.
