In order for an engine to start it needs a charged battery, a working starter, properly functioning ignition switch and ignition system, a fuel system that is working correctly, good wiring and connections throughout, and a free rotating engine (unseized). Seek the assistance of a YourMechanic professional to inspect your entire vehicle over for faults in your starting system. Faulty parts that could prevent your vehicle from starting include battery, starter, alternator, wiring, fuel pump, fuel filter, computer issue, engine timing issue, faulty ignition coils, spark plugs, etc. Make sure the technician checks these parts on your vehicle to ensure they are working properly.
