Hi there. No start conditions can be caused by a whole host of possible causes. Fuel pressure needs to be checked to ensure there is fuel available for startup and verify fuel pump operations. Power to the fuel injectors comes from the electronic immobilizer circuit via a relay and the injectors are ground controlled by the engine's computer. So if injection is not happening, the immobilizer and computer may need to be checked. The ignition system and the key itself may need to be checked and of course fault codes should be scanned to see if there may be some other underlying issues like a crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor that may be faulty. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to assist in the diagnosis and repair of this no start condition as they will have the expertise and equipment needed to diagnose your no start issue.
