Correct me, someone, if I am wrong but the ignition light you speak of has nothing to do with the ignition system. When it is lit it shows that there is power to the exiter circuit  in the alternator. Why they used a light marked "ignition" I don't know, but if your ignition system is working properly you have no need of that light. If you have the original style multi wire alternator you may need that exiter circuit to generate power.

If the plugs are sparking and the fuel pump is working it's probably a timing issue. Read up on everything you can in the archives here and get ready for a learning experience.  Better yet find a Lotus mechanic that can troubleshoot that issue.
