Both coils suddenly quitting, going bad would be rare.
The kill switch can kill the spark.
Look at the 3 yellow wire's connector from the stater to the regulator.
It is famous for heating and melting the connections.
It may be your charging problem which might also lead to low voltage and weak ignition.
Jump the battery with a non-running car battery so you can crank it up and test what is happening.

The 3 yellow wires are for the charging system. So they don't cause a no spark situation.
Make sure the kill switch is ON.
Jump the battery with a non running car battery to have all the crank power you need.
If it still doesn't have spark check the fuses.
Check for power at the black/white wires to the coils and ignition unit.

Get into a manual and see how to measure the resistance of the pulse generators.
