if you've already replaced the crank sensor and the coil then I'd next move onto checking to see if the ECU has got 12V with the ignition on - check at the fuse

and if it has then check the condition of the battery earth connections , the main one that connects the battery to the engine block and the smaller ones that run out of the engine bay wiring loom and are secured to the engine with small bolts and ring terminals

I'd also check to see if you have no spark on any of the other cylinders too
