Any check engine codes?

how do you retrieve the codes

4,420

OBD II code reader or go to a parts store and most of them will pull codes for you. Call first if it is an independent shop.

These code readers are cheap online. As low as $10 for an Autel.

How sure are you that both the battery and starter are good? Load test battery? Have you done a voltage drop test on all the wires going from battery to starter, battery to alternator, alternator to ground and body grounds? Do you hear a click when trying to start car? No crank no start, or crank no start? Lots of possibilities.

Do you have a red key blinking on dash when you turn key? If so it is your anti-theft PATS system.

no

You said fuse replaced...which one blew? There is a reason it blew. Start with this circuit as it might lead you to your issue. Did it blow again and you haven't checked it?
