Do you have a security light on? The fuel pump might be working but if your injectors aren't spraying, you're staying home.

Fuel may be getting to the injectors but they might not inject any of it, you may want to start by checking the injection system fuses.

A quick way to check if it's gas or spark is to spray a shot of starting fluid in the intake. If it fires, you have spark and no fuel.
