when you turn key to on position do you hear fuel pump turning on? is security light flashing? pull a spark plug and crank it while grounding wire to frame should spark...

Usually I hate to say this but it's usually the battery cable connections so make sure they're clean and tight. Try the easiest simplest things first your connections your fuses those kinds of things first because it could be anything from a crank position sensor to a lose wire or something else so you just have to do your homework and check everything out and get back to us and see what happens.

    All looks good with key in the ignition and dash board lights on. Car does not start with no clicking or other noise. It does start occasionally but mostly after a few days.
