swap out coil then try to borrow ignition module from a car that you know works.

make sure battery is fully charged,no blown fuses or fault codes

few years ago i went through 4 ignition modules (reconditioned from shop) , took the car to few auto electric places and didn't really get any solid answer's as to why they were failing. I'd almost given up and was thinking heavily on selling the car (ignition modules are not cheap) but my old man came across some information about ignition modules and people not having them properly earthed to the chassis. Anyway i hooked up few more earths in the car and i haven't had a problem since.. not saying this is your problem but i thought i'd share...

Sounds like maybe an immobiliser/key problem. Just check that tiny metal part coming out from your key makes contact with the ring around the ignition and the flashing light on your dash turns off.
