Need some help/thoughts

Okay...

So I'm cruisin to pick up a part for a customers car not even 2 miles from my shop. Prelude runs great. I park, get out, get part and return to my vehicle. The car doesn't want to start. Just turns over. It tried to catch and start maybe 3 times initially with no success. Now it just turns over and doesn't partially fire at all.

I have fuel but I'm not sure about spark. I tested each wire to the dizzy/icm and I only have voltage(with key on engine off) to one wire (black/yellow).

I have JDM F22B in my 92 4th gen. I had the motor installed 6 months ago. Of course crap goes wrong when I'm 2 weeks out of warranty! :D Stupid rotor button bolt is stripped so I wasn't able to remove ICM and take it to be tested yet.

Any ideas? The main relay appears to have been replaced by the previous owner and the fuel pump cuts on when the key is turned to on position so the symptoms are not typical of the main relay.

I'm contemplating taking it to a shop if I can decide that it'll be a relatively cheap fix. I'd just like to diagnose and fix it my self if I can. Any ideas???
