Does the starter motor crank? If so, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Check for applicable codes.

Just to add, you can check mil codes, yourself. Turn key just till dash lites come on, no further, cycle the key on--off, on--off, on. Then the mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes.

Yes it cranks. When you turn the key the lights don't come on on the dashboard just the airbag light shows And the blinkers and the radio would stop working sometimes when the car worked just a few days before it completely died.

Have you tried any tests, I suggested? Unless you can answer some of my questions, I'm not sure how to help?
