Welcome to the forum, when it won't restart, Have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs, if you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. How long since a tune-up?

If you have bypass ignition, the ignition module controls spark during cranking, does the crank sensor plug into the ignition module? Possibilities, crank sensor-- ignition module-- wiring circuits. Any trouble codes?
