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 will cause a no start condition and it's going to require some testing at the time the problem is happening. It looks as though the engine had died at some point also and then wouldn't start, if that's related then there may be an engine controller related issue, depending on the vehicle.

Are you hoping to do the required testing yourself?
