If its cranking over and w/n start-Do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem

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 so, 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

I know little about computer vehicles

If I were in your situation I might would fall back on the ole "UNPLUG IT FOR A MINUTE ROUTINE"

Disconnect your Battery for maybe 5 minutes and try again! What could it hurt. Its about the simplest thing you can do safely.

Or maybe someone else with better knowledge may come in behind me, Just to update the next feller that might come along. What fuse did you pull?

Return with WONDERFUL NEWS!
