Does it turn over when you hit the key ? Does it have spark (did you test for spark) ? Does it get fuel (did you test fuel pressure) ? Are the injectors firing (did you test them) ? If everything's fine then why isn't it starting ? Let us know what happens .

How do you know the battery is fine? If the alternator isn't working properly and isn't charging the battery even a new battery can die very quickly. Check the ground cables as well.
