Ride: 1998 EL Ford Futura

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

My '98 EL Futura is running normally, but will occasionally ( more often now then not ) cut out while driving along with no signs it's about to happen. Then when I try and start it again, there is no spark at the plugs. After waiting a while it will start again, but it can be anywhere between a few minutes or hours. All the leads are fine, has a new coil, new battery, good terminals, not fuel related at all.

Heard it could be the BCM, the Hall Effect Sensor or the Ignition Module?

Any past experience, ideas or advice would be fantastic. I desperately need the car for work again.
