so yesterday i was drivin in front of dominicks and my car dies...good thing it happened there...i push it to the back of the lot, thinking wtf?...its got fuel, pump turns on, so i check spark and its got nothing...look around and see that 1 of the 3 sets of wiring that goes to the ignition control module has burnt up aginst the egr pipe and shorted out, i cut the bad section of wire out, replace the fuse for the ign. module....try to start it and nothing...well i decide to pull the coil packs off and take a look if anything is fried...the 1st coil pack was all burnt up on the bottom side where the electrical connections go, (btw..i got msd coil packs), luckily i had my 3 stockers, had them brought up to me and i replaced them and everything was fine...but heres my question, why would the 1 coil pack burn out only?

Because only one of the three sets of wires was burned?

not the spark plug wires...theres 3 plugs with wires that go to the icm, and the one wire on one of the plug sets was shorted...
