You would need to have the fuel pump pressure tested to make sure the pressure is between 54psi and 64psi and should hold steady. If the pressure is not as specified the vehicle will not start since it will not open the injectors. Replace the fuel pump and filter. If the pressure is okay then have the spark tested as it may need an ignition module or coil. Since you can’t get the car started, have it looked at by one of our mobile technicians, as a certified technician will be able to come to your home to diagnose your starting issue firsthand.
