Have you checked for fuel pressure or spark?
Spray some starting fluid in as someone cranks. If it fires a bit it means no fuel, if nothing happens you have a spark issue.

Could be your starter or cps sensor but check the starter as I wasted money on a cps sensor when that wasnt the problem

If the engine does not turn over starter, if it turns over but will not start then CPS could be bad.
