michael, more info. may of helped engine,auto/manual any previous work done recently,etc. The first thing to check is there fuel in the tank, do you hear the fuel pump come on and cycle/ is the security lite on. You may have to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes as a start as many things can cause your vehicle not to start, faulty crank sensor, Ignition module, coil packs, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pump, etc. Best to have a good Technician have a look, diagnose and estimate repair. Good luck. Link below may have more diagnosing procedures for you to check out.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

also check to make sure that the spark plugs are working correctly. often times if the engine is turning but the car is not coming on then the spark plugs need to be changed
