security system shutting you down? new key,? need reset? maybe or just a simple fuel problem ,though not so simple,start with a splash of fuel in air horn, if revs up for 2 seconds,yep fuel delivery,pump relay or filter or pump itself .try a start,this may be an intermittent ! the biggest challenge.no start.good! hammer on tank with hammer some try start. no start. lock and unlock doors,no start ,pump relay , replace or switch with other ones in box or bench test.

It's not the security system or key re set.. It would not crank over if it was, other than that jimmy pretty much has it covered.

A lot of no start problems with later model cars can be related to a over fueling issue. The main cause can be if the car is started moved a very short distance ie driveway into garage and then turned off. The next time you get in to start, it will crank over but not start.Sometimes if you have a keen ear the engine may sound like it has no compression. Same type of sound when you have a broken timing belt. Now the remedy, hold the throttle fully down to the floor the computer will now put the system into flood mode and will stop any more fuel being injected into the engine. Crank the engine whilst still holding the accelerator to the floor you may get a few coughs and sputters and then it should start. If you kept trying to start it prior to holding your foot flat down there is the possibility you may need to remove the spark plugs and dry them off. It can also help while the plugs are out to add a few drops of oil into the cylinders. Robbo
