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 visually check for spark at the plugs? If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and check fuel injector pulse? Any applicable trouble codes? Those are the basic checks, in my opinion. Let us know what you find?
