Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could be causing your no start condition and it's going to require some testing to determine what is going on. You could be missing spark, fuel, the issue could be with wiring, even the engine controller itself.

Have you tested spark and fuel pressure?
