It's either no spark or no fuel. Check for fuel pressure. Do you hear the pump when you turn the key?

What year RM do you have? Is the engine cranking? or no cranking? If you have the chip in your key and you car is high mileage the key/lock assembly could be worn. This causes the "antitheft interlock" to activate and the car will not crank. I have had this happen on both of my high milage RM wagons. You will need at the very least have a new key made. If the lock assembly is real worn you will need to replace everything (lock and key set). I just needed new keys.
