Check the amperage draw on the main battery cable. If it does not crank at all, it could be the key reader or the Computer Box. Are there any fault codes in the system? The Immobilizer light next to the clock, what is it doing. When the ignition is switched to the ON possition does this light come on for about two seconds and then goe out ? Does it stay ON or not come on at all ? Check the femail pins in the junction box where the relays plug in. Are these pins being pushed out through the bottom of the Junction box.
