Make sure battery has sufficient charge,make sure it's got good ground,check to see if fuel pump is engaging,,if not engaging,check fuel pump relay,if at all possible check obd2 codes and confirm if any codes are present if there are then these codes will be the source of your no start issue,if issue is unresolved with codes then it's an ignition issue
