Double check the on/off switch. They are prone to corrosion and will not allow a spark, but the motor will turn over. Turn it off and on several times, if necessary dis-assemble, hit the contacts with emory cloth squirt some electrical grease and button it back up. Should work for a few years again, then repeat. DAMHIK, on my 3rd "L" and has happened to every one...

No easy way to test the ICM, I think.

What year XRL?

But the coil, pulse generator, and associated wiring is pretty easy to test. So I suppose by process of elimination the ICM is easy to test :)

Take both wires from the clutch switch and ground them both to bypass all the crank/run safeties.

Also, try pulling the ICM and getting rough with it. When they go bad often you can get them to work for a little while after beating on 'em.
