Unhappy 84 BMW 318i

I've got an 84 318i that died. I was backing out of my garage in the road and it died. When you leave it alone for a few mins it will start for a sec and die. I replaced the coil. The wires, plugs, rotor and cap are decent. There is plenty of fuel pressure and all the injectors and pumps are brand new. Any ideas?

Thumbs down

i replaced the coil and checked out the ignition control module. I also checked the ground from the corner of the head that goes to the frame and cleaned it and the main ground as well. It will start and run for 10-30 seconds now. Also when it was dark i saw a spark in the area of the ground but it's not happening now. Stumped.
