As another poster mentioned, make sure you have fuel in the tank. If you have a spare key to your vehicle, try the second key and see if it starts. If it is a programed key, although rare, the chip programing may have been corrupted and may have to be re-programed.

Actually it happens more often than one would think. I remember years ago a guy was working on his car for some time resolving no start condition, then left and come back with a gas container, his car started right after that. He admitted empty gas tank was the culprit. And one of my neighbor had a hard time starting his lawn mower - the same problem.

I bring it up because of an incident some 40 years ago where someone repeat answered me over and over that there was fuel in a tank of a motorcycle and working on it in 20 degree windy weather trying to start it. When I finally got mad and checked the tank myself to find it empty I could have choked him..........

....and, if the owner is the type to run the tank to empty all the time.........well, it's one of the fastest ways to burn up the fuel pump there is when the pump runs dry over and over until the last remaining fuel gets into it little by little. Modern electric pumps will run dry of fuel maybe a total of a minute before they begin to melt the plastic impellers from dry running. Add up all those run drys and there you go, a dead pump. Why all the owner manuals now tell you not to run the tanks dry, it also can kill the catalytic converters quicker than spit too.
