Does the vehicle crank? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. May have to check feed to and from the ignition switch?

Battery has a full charge?

Engine cranking, do you have spark at the spark plugs? The reason I asked, primary voltage at the ignition coil and gage fuse, are ignition feed. Circuits go hot with the key on, use a voltage tester. If no voltage I'd have to check feed to and from ignition switch.
