Default 91 galant wont start....think its power control module

Hey i searched the site and i couldnt find any answers to my problem so i thought i would post this. I have a 91 mitsu galant and its not starting at the moment. I was driving it one day stopped at a gas station came back out and wouldnt start. Tryed jumping it, replacing battery, still was not starting. I then checked to see if it was getting a spark and if fuel was coming out. It was. So then i took off the fuel rail and fuel was getting throught the fuel rail. The problem i summed it down to is the injectors are not firing. I think it might be the PCM(power control module) but i dont want to spend 300 bucks on that and it not be it. I was just wondering if anyone had the same problem with the 89-92 galants 2.0 SOHC engines. Ive had a couple people say it might be a sensor. But any answer will be greatly appreciated either to fix it or a test to find what it is, as i am carless right now.

Thank you,

JC

Are you getting spark?

Im thinkin either a fuse or a sensor. (CAS?)

The fuses, on my 95 Galant, all look good. The engine cranks, that means there is spark right? The engine cranks like its going to start but then nothing happens. A mechanic checked the distributor and he says its good, he said that it might be the control module (whatever that is:-). So now, I'm trying to look for a control module. Anyway to check this module if its working or not?

TIA

Ipe

No spark. I tried cleaning the battery terminals and connections as I read from the other threads but still no go.

Is that something that can be repaired or does that need to be replaced?
