CAR WILL NOT START

2000 Mazda Familia • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 79,000 miles

My car will not start up altough all the lights turn on and the car alarm and other electronic devices work.
We have tried to jump start it and it still will not start up.
We are now trying to charge the actual battery, is this the right thing to do? As we have checked for the battery indicator and it is still black which means on the actual battery that it possibly needs charging but we are unsure.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
