Pull a plug wire and see if you have any spark. If not, your coil is bad. If you have good spark, you may have a bad fuel pump. Take off the gas cap and have someone hit the key to Accessory. Do you hear the fuel pump humming? If not, your fuel pump is not working. But first, check your fuses and relays. Post back with findings.........

try resetting the anti theft

Are you using a new key? If so, it must be programmed to the car. HTH. -Jim

Forgot to mention, you may have a bad Neutral Safety Switch. Try starting it in neutral. Try to wiggle the gear shift around while starting.
