Hi and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. The most economical way to address this issue is to have a scanner hooked to your vehicle and retrieve any codes. This will isolate the issue and in turn be the cheapest way to fix your car. There could be a number of things preventing your car from starting and just picking items to replace will be very costly.

If you would consider, YourMechanic can send a certified technician to you to retrieve these codes and diagnose your no start condition, provide you an estimate for the repairs, and even repair your vehicle.
