Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. If it cranks good but won't start have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes po or manufacturer specific? I noticed you have tac/throttle actuator control, that can cause problems, you might try cleaning the throttle bore and around throttle plate, don't force the throttle plate.
