Could be the crankshaft position sensor.

Crank sensor would prevent spark. How do you know its getting fuel? The security system on this vehicle will disable injector pulse so it will still get fuel pressure but it won't get fuel into the intake. Is there a security light that is flashing or staying on past 5 seconds? Have you tried starting fluid?
