I guess your relay is busted need to renew and check the fuses in the fusebox.

Could be, but what relay? Let's go back to basics. It's either fuel or spark. Your OBD codes can be read without the engine running, the faults are stored to be scanned at any time. With the limited information I have, that's my best suggestion, buy, borrow, steal, (just kidding don't do that) an OBD scanner and see what fault codes appear. The OBD port is under the dash, right under steering wheel

PS you say your battery is good, OK, but are the terminals clean, no corrosion? Do you hear anything, anything at all when you try to start it? Another possibility is your anti theft system needs to be re programmed. If you had the battery out it must be re set to the key

Close all of the doors and the windows on your car. Lock and unlock the driver's door with your key and enter the car and close the door behind you. Insert your key into the ignition and do not turn it. Wait for the security light to turn on and leave your key in the ignition for 15 seconds. Remove the key, wait for the light to turn off and wait 30 seconds to open the door to end the programming sequence.

Thank you very much to David H25 because he Save the Day! He was right it was the Anti-Theft system. The car was not throwing any codes, the battery was good and the alternator was good, and I refused to take it to a mechanic. My key fob had died a few days ago, and I had not replaced it, or driven the car in 3 days. Once I replaced the key FOB battery, it took about three tries of DavidH25's method and the car started!! I check the owner's manual and it was in some obscure part, but I would have never checked that.
