Don't wait for nothing, do below immediately to determine whether it's a fuel or spark problem:

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and
ground it to the engine at least 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, 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, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.

Hi there,

With no starter power you will have to start checking the supply to the starter solinoid, first check that there is power to the small wire on the starter solinoid with the key on crank, if there is power there and there is power at the main cable the starter is faulty, if no power at the small solinoid wire you may have a faulty transmission isolator switch, check this first.
