Are you getting a check engine light while cranking the engine over? Could be possibly be PCM power relay or failed ignition coil.

Yes, the check engine light on while trying to crank it. Also, I have replaced the coil. Where is the PCM power relay located?

Well if your check engine light is coming on your getting power to the ECM, here is two checks, first check for power at the coil (first diagram, should be 12 volts), second check the crank sensor for a pulse while turning the engine over. It is powered up on the grey wire. The crank sensor will stop your ignition if its not sending a signal to the ECM.

It appears the cranksensor is on the rear of the engine block, near the flywheel, This varies on some models but yours should be on the bell housing. Look for the Grey and Blue wire connector at the sensor, the colors change to Black and White down the circuit at a connector on the harness. Its only a 2 wire sensor. You can check it for power and a pulse coming from it while cranking. Also check that ignition coil for power. Make sure you didn't blow any fuses or anything basic like that as well.
