Did you check primary voltage to ignition coil? Goes hot with key on, red wire with green tracer. you can use a test light to check voltage.
For testing you can use digital multimeter across battery posts, have helper turn key to crank, how far does the reading drop? If it drops to zero, it is probable you won't have any spark. Generally it should not drop below 9 volts. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. As far as testing, if the battery is down, we're just spinning our wheels.

SOURCE: I have ford ranger 2003,
You gatta find out if it has any type of theft system and most likely if it does then disconnect it because the computer for it may have malfuntioned and by u disconneting it will deactivate the security for the constint turning over and not starting... so figure that out first...

i had the same problem. there is a group of wires that go by the distributer and branch off to the distributer and go towards the front. when i would jiggle it the van would die. it ended up being a pinched wire.
