2003 Grand Am Won’t Start

Question

Hey guys. I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am 2.2L with 152k miles on it. Was driving the other day and it sputtered then shut off practically dieing on its face. It cranks but won’t fire now. We replaced the MAP sensor, ignition control module, TPS sensor, checked every fuse and relay, even replaced the battery and checked the alternator, getting fuel...nothing still. Does anyone have any kind of clue what I can check? Google shows me a whole slew of issues with this car but it’s overwhelming even thinking about where to begin. Haven’t checked for spark, we aren’t sure how to do this with this coil on boot setup this car has.

Welp, in a recent turn of events, we actually discovered the Security light is staying solidly on and the ignition coils aren’t getting any spark. Time for a new ignition lock cylinder or resistor bypass under the glove box...

What would cause a no spark symptom from the ignition coil? Out of the random? We are stumped.
