How do you know it is a spark issue?

I would try to troubleshoot vs replacing parts. When issue happens, did you check coil output (crank while coil output is 1/4" from ground) and voltages on both sides of coil (again, while cranking)?

I have checked that it's like if it has a relay or something there is no signal coming from the computer but the u crank several times and it starts up like nothing ever happened is there a relay for the ignition switch

Could you please explain this differently, I don't understand.

If you could explain the testing that you have done so far, and the results, we can provide feedback on what to try next.

Ok, so, if I understand correctly, you are getting .2V from the computer while cranking.

a) Where did you measure this? At coil or computer? You want to measure it at negative side of coil. If so, you are close.
b) Do you have 12V on positive side of coil?
c) was spark tester on spark plug cable or on coil output (high voltage) cable? you should test it on coil high voltage cable first.
