Most likely suspect is the ignition fuse in the fuse block under the dash. Otherwise check the coil for power. Is this an EA81 or EA82 engine? ECU lends to EA82. You probably broke a timing belt. More than likely the drivers side belt. Remove distributor cap and check if distributor is moving!

 

And, for future reference. If this is an EA82 your best to describe it as a 3dr. It will aid in assistance when you have a problem. Otherwise, refer to it as an EA81 Hatch. It just eliminates unnecessary questions.

Qman - thanks for quick response - Ken is sleeping so I'm monitoring this - EA81 - so no timing belt - he did check all the fuses - or at least he said so.    I will have him check coil and also check to see if distributor is moving.  Thanks!  Lynn

No need to check if disty is moving if it's an ea81. You have a blown fuse possibly or you're coil isn't grounded or has gone bad.
