Find out what it isn't getting, fuel or spark. Also has the battery been tested? Sounds silly but I have seen in a few cases where a slightly weak battery will allow the vehicle to crank but the juice required to turn the engine over left nothing for the computer. It would start with a jump but without a jump it just cranked.
