BMW 320i WON'T START (no spark)

Hi guys,

I am new to the F30 world. Trying to help my sister start her car again. I wish things were as simple as on my e46... Or at least "less complex"

The situation is that the car won't start, and it literally happened overnight.

The car used to run just fine before that. It's a 2012 320i

What I know:

- There is power, 12v
- The car cranks so the starter motor also works
- There's fuel going to the engine (tested fuel pump). It's got power, I can hear it switch on, and I even lightly unscrewed a couple of the fuel rail arms and fuel came right out. The OBD reader is even giving a code for high fuel output now since we've been trying to start it up on multiple occasions.

I must point out that the OBD reader is also giving 3 codes related to the DTC, although I don't see how this would be related. P2D00, C257A and P13E5

Her brakes are completely finished and so I think that might be the reason for those.

So basically everything is indicating that there's no spark and I'm stuck

Can anyone please tell me what's up? I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance.
