1994 c1500 ignition coil plug wire keeps burning out

I have a 1994 chevy 1500 with a 350 motor in it. It died the other day at a red light the engine died I put it in neutral, and re started it. It ran two minutes then died again. I was getting no spark and the rotor an distributor cap were fouled with corrosion so I replaced them. Still had no spark so and none coming from the ignition coil so I replaced that as well. Then my brain kicked in and I tested the plug wires, turns out the wire between the cap and coil was dead. The truck fired right up and ran for twenty minutes the died. I checked the brand bed wires and the one between the coil and cap is dead. I got a new set of plug wires thinking maybe it was a Defective set, ( have to love auto zone's lifetime warranty )
Put the new wire on and it would not crank at all checked the wire an it's has no connectivity using the ohms meter.
Is there a chance someone knows where my problem is?

you should go back to auto zone and have them check the coil wire. If it is bad have it warrantied and have the check the new one before you take it. Then, if it checks out good, see what happens when you run the vehicle.

what happens when you put the key to start? anything? nothing, fast clicking, one click then nothing but it clicks once every time you turn to start? turn the headlights on. then watch the headlights when someone turns the key to start. What happen to the headlights?

you need to check your connections. there is a purple wire that goes from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. check to see if you are getting battery power on that wire when the key is in the start position. If you don't have battery voltage in start, check the purple wire where it comes out of the ignition switch. (yellow if you have manual trans) The current goes from the ignition switch to either the neutral safety switch for automatics or the clutch switch for manual trans.
