There are many possible issues that will keep a car from starting. There could be a bad fuel pump, a wiring problem, a failed sensor (such as the mass airflow sensor or an oxygen sensor), or any number of other possible causes. It would be best to have a certified technician look at the vehicle and perform some diagnostic tests to pinpoint the cause of the problem. They will need to find out if there is sufficient fuel pressure, spark, and check for any vacuum leaks.
