Default 02 Cabrio won't start.

I picked up an 02 Cabrio last week, pevious owner replaced the battery drove it a few miles and it died and wouldn't start back. I've been over everything, it all works except no signal to coil from ECU. The injectors pulse, so I would imagine that the crank sensor is good, the fuel pump runs as it should, I replaced the coolant temp sensor because I thought it may have been the issue and tried another ECU and still no spark signal. I've also consulter with the local VW dealer and euro specalists and they said I checked or tried everything they would have. Also the gauge cluster isn't working either, all the lights work just no gauges. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

That could be a number of things. You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing.
