so you have power, all you need is spark and fuel. So one of those you don't have. Can you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key to the on position? Maybe it's the fuel pump, or maybe it's the coil, or your battery cables. Do some more investigating.

Does it turn or but won't start? Or don't turn over at all?

If it doesn't turn but you get power check into the neutral switch for your gear shifter. If it's an automatic. Alternate between the neutral position and park position on your shift selector and try starting it when it's in neutral and when it's in park. I've had lots of vehicles that did that and started after I shook the shifter up or had to put it in neutral everytime I started it
