What are your other symptoms? What is the battery voltage? Does it crank? Any other issues recently?

Michael Kane

These are known for no start issues if the MAF ( mass air flow sensor ) is dirty. It may need to be cleaned or replaced, but I agree with Tom more info would help pin point the problem.
