My 2 gen wont spark

Hi, I have got a 1987 2 gen Prelude. I had it in storage for the winter and wen i tried to start it after 3 moths it did not spark. I was wondering what might be the problem with my car. I have replaced a couple of things first I replaced a black cube with 5 wires plugged to it in the middle of the firewall, then I replaced a black cube behind the main fuse box behind the battery, I also replaced the coil and the distributer cap. I checked all fuses and it still will not spark. What do you think is wrong. Tomorrow I will check if the fuel cutoff relay is ok. If that is ok i dont have a clue what might be wrong.

how old is the battery. a lot of times the battery will allow the car to crank but doesnt have enough juice to start it.

It has a new battery. I doubt the battery is a problem.

Re: My 2 gen wont spark

the yellow and black wire that connects to the coil. does it go to the + or - side?
and if the wiring is wrong what happens?

Re: My 2 gen wont spark

Now i got a new problem. It started and runs fine, It was the pulse generator, But now the problem is that the head lights dont light up, not the high or lo beams, also it stopped charging so i think their is some relay or something that is not properly connected. but i cant find out what that might be. any suggestions ?
