Having problems with your 1997 GMC Sierra ?

I am not getting any spark to the spark plugs to get engine to turn over, start, or run. I already replaced the plugs and everything to do with them, the fuel filter, the air filter, and the relay switch. Fuses are all good. The starter is the last thing I replaced because it wouldn't even engage, now there is no spark......

The wires were not properly grounded or intalled, they began smoking and melted all the way to the battery. The connector for the turn signal aftermarket lighs also burned and fused to negative side of battery. ECM replaced, sensors replaced, not blown fuse, starter checked, alternataor checked, spark plugs replaced, all wires seem to be connected and operational. No check
