Question 96 Ram van 2500 No Spark or fuel

I have a 96 van that has a 360. While driving down the road it just died. Now it just cranks. No spark or fuel. I have tried the computer on another dodge and it works fine. I also tried a different crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor both with no effect. i also tried changing out the autoshut down relay with a different on. Still no spark or fuel. The check engine light also will not come on when i turn the key on. checked the bulb and it was good. Any ideas on what it could be?

I'm thinking a bad ground wire. I'd check the main engine ground and especially the ground to the fuse box under the hood. I'm not sure how the truck is configured but on my Aurora, if you loosen the two hold down screws for the fuse box, you lose your ground and all power (don't ask how I found this out). Is the relay you checked in this box and did you loosen any screws related to the box? Is the pcm grounded properly? Clean all ground wire connections and check the wires for resistance with a digital volt meter.
