Are you indicating that this vehicle will not CRANK the battery is dead.......or.......are you saying the engine cranks over the battery is good....but the engine will not FIRE UP?

it's turns over its not getting no fire to desibtour

OK...It appears you have no spark to the spark plugs. You should verify no spark by going to an Auto parts Store and buying a spark tester which will confirm you have spark to the spark plugs. While you are there you should also buy a 12 volt TEST LIGHT which will allow us to check the ignition and out of the ignition coil.
