Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start issue. It may be a loss of fuel pressure due to a lack of power or ground to the pump or it may be a loss of spark for a number of reasons. You may have a failed ignition module or coil issues, wiring, it could be loss of signal from the cam or crank sensors.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is checking for fault codes, nearly anything causing a loss of spark will set a code. Have you checked for codes?
