Check your neutral safety switch. Shift the car into neutral (WHILE HOLDING THE BREAK) and try to start it. if it starts go to autozone have them check it this will only work and short time. If it doesn't work, then it could be the Computer

I worked on a 2004 neon with a no crank no start problem I found that the four connectors on the PCM were a little loose by pushing on then one at a time I got the relay in the power distribution box to click so then it would turn over and run for a secound or two then using the key I locked and unlocked the driver door twice then again using the key I opened the trunk lid closed it then started it up have had no problems since I tried this after cleaning and trouble shooting and could not find any reason for it not to start or crank over good luck !!!
