Hello - check fuses of course. Still, this issue is probably a higher-level component failure, since both cranking and fuel supply are not working. Most likely failures are the ignition switch, or the alarm system. I would recommend having a car is not starting inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
