Is your check engine light on while trying to start it? No check engine light means no power to ECM and it won't start. If not check your fuses and the efi main relay. These relays are known to become loose and give similar issues.

Just for giggles double check your crank position sensor electrical connections. Also are you absolutely sure that the coils and spark plugs are not firing? Might want to remove one, ground plug on metal and have someone turn engine over as you watch for spark.

Ok yes it has individual coils. Ok your crank position sensor sends signal to ecu and ecu sends signal to coils for them to fire. Starting to wonder if you might have a loose ground somewhere causing your issues. Or some other loose connection in this loop.
