Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that will cause a no start condition and it will take some electrical testing to determine exactly what is going on. You could simply have a bad starter, it could be a blown fuse or power distribution issue, wiring, the powertrain control module may not be awake due to an internal failure or a loss of power or ground.

Does the fuel pump run and throttle body do a self test when the key is first turned on?
