Why would a new computer for a 1996 Chevy Cavalier not send juice to the coil pack to fire?

because the computer isn't responsible for the actual triggering of the coil packs, it does affect when they fire but not the direct firing itself.. this is done by the ignition module which is controlled by the computer. so odds are that the ignition module itself is not working.
