Issues with the fuel, ignition, and electrical systems are the most common causes of no starts. I would recommend having a professional come inspect your vehicle from YourMechanic. This technician will inspect your ignition, fuel, and electrical systems for proper function. If anything is found to be faulty during the inspection, have it replaced and your vehicle should start. Commonly replaced parts due to no starts would include but are not limited to batteries, starters, alternators, fuel pumps, spark plugs, and distributors or ignition coils.
