If the battery has been replaced and the engine is rotating normally but still not starting, we would be most concerned with there being a lack of fuel (including poor fuel quality) or lack of spark.

When you turn the key on, does the Service Engine Soon light turn on even briefly?

When you crank the engine, if a helper listens either at the gas cap opening or with their ear to the back seat, can they hear the fuel pump running (specifically while cranking the engine)?

Did anything else happen apart from two weeks of sitting (for example was it sitting because repairs were being made or anything like that)?
