Check for spark while cranking. Check the fuel injectors are pulsing. Check there is pressurised fuel in the fuel rail (carefully depress the schrader valve, and cover your eyes with safety's). If all 3 are OK, put your foot on the gas pedal, push it to the floor and hold it there while you crank for 30 seconds. Turn it off, then try and start it normally (no gas pedal at all). If any of the above don't work, you can investigate the correct area. If possible, run a diagnostic scan.
