Crank sensor? Fuses & relays.

The term 'turning over" also means the engine cranks, but doesn't start. No cranking is ignition or the starter.

Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on that. If so it's a fuel problem. If not check for spark. If you have spark and it won't run on the starting fluid do a compression test. If all cylinders test very low or zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
