Default No spark! What am I missing here?

I just replaced the timing set on my 2000 Bonneville SSEi. The engine cranks, but will not start. It is getting fuel but not spark. What am I overlooking here?

Check your coil packs, make sure everything is plugged in correctly. What exactly did you all replace?

One of the coil packs are loose, but it was that way before I did anything with the car. I made sure I put the magnet on the new cam sprocket. I am positive that the timing marks are lined up correctly and I am pretty sure that I got all the sensor wiring re-connected. I also replaced the crank sensor, but I did that right before I replaced the timing set, and the car ran fine right before I tore it apart. I double checked all the sensors and ground wires and everything seems to be in order. I also checked all the fuses for the ICM and Ignition, which were all ok.
