EA died again, can anyone help?

my EA just died while driving today, I tried to start it again, it will turn over, but wont start on petrol or gas, also both lights on the petrol/gas switch have gone out, so Im guessing its electrical.
its sparking just not getting either fuel.

does anyone have any idea what it could be?
any help at this point would be good.
thanx

TFI module probably died, and is not providing ingition pulses for either the ECU to provide fuel, or to the gas safety switch to provide gas.

If the TFI did die, would it still be spraking?

No, if the TFI module died, you may not get spark.

cause its still sparking, the TFI and dizzy where replaced last year, it wouldnt be a relay or somthing would it? cause Iv just had a prob with a relay and it would only turn over and not start (same as now). that was fixed now its happening again and we put another one in, but the same thing is happening.

Check all the fuses in the fuse box,

Check all the relays near the battery, its common for water to get in there, also check all the fusible links from the battery

Failing that, does the car have an immobiliser, or have any wires under the dash been disturbed?

AFAIK and I'm not an expert, but gas cars have a relay to switch between gas and petrol. This is usually located on or neat the intake and is clearly aftermarket.
Try that?
