Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the engine died and now will not crank then there is a good chance the powertrain control module isn't awake. The PCM is the module that controls all engine functions. If the PCM is down it could be an internal failure or a loss of power or ground to it.

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

Do you have a scan tool to check for PCM communication?

Does the engine light do a bulb check and go out when the key is first turned on?
