You have two sources of power to the coil. One is when the engine is cranking and the other is when the key is in the run position.

You have no electric power in the run position to the coil.

Possible reasons are fuse to ignition burnt, broken wire to the coil or shorted wire causing ignition fuse to burn.

You will have to find and fix this wire or replace the fuse.
