I never located the problem, but I fixed it.
After I put the new coils on and it wouldn't light due to the igniter not heating up, I decided to use jumper wires to bypass each separate part in the circuit. I removed each wire from its spade and then pushed it back on to ensure I wouldn't have any difficulties using the jumpers when the time came.
Just for the hell of it I tried to light it off one more time, and guess what? It worked flawlessly. Now, I know each wire was on the right connector, and I didn't jar any of them during all of this
, so it had to be one of them that wasn't making the connection to complete the circuit.
So, before you go off the deep end, remove and replace your wires to ensure a good connection before you make any other decisions
