The easiest and cheapest way is to go to a shop wherethey use scopemeter testing.

The DIYer's way is to get the shop manual buy a spark tester and do exactly what the manual and the testers manual tell you to do to measure for spark.

Another DIYer's way is to buy a coil pack and swap it out for a bad one and then test for spark.

Not likely that all coils went. Ignition module is a common for all coils and so is battery and ignition switch.let me know how you make out.
