Once that happened to my car because of a problem with the alarm and I had to uninstall it. Another time it was a connector near the key switch lose. It could also be the coil but the guys from Ford must have changed it already...
Good luck.

If I read correctly, you said that the engine turns quickly and has no spark. Sounds like the timing belt has given out. It may not have broke, the teeth may have come off of the rubber belt down at the crankshaft/harmonic balancer area. You had not mentioned that this area was checked. Sounds very possible to me.

if ur car has no spark at all try changing the distributer....there about 540$ brand new...i went to a junkie and got one for 135$ that solved all my problems!!

I think the other person who said timing belt is correct as a new distributor was installed. If the belt is good use a 12volt test light put it on the negative coil terminal. When somebody is cranking the engine the light should blink. Also check for power to the primary with the ignition on. Coils can and do go bad but not frequently. A pickup in the distributor pulses the coil.
