Try your spare key, or the valet key in the ignition.
I had this problem too, the key would unlock the doors and release the trunk but would not start the car. Took out the spare key and it started. Go figure? Hope it works for you. I was off to get a new starter put in the car when my GREAT brother in law said, try to valet key, maybe the key lost its memory. He was right and saved me a boat load of money $$$$.

First check petrol flow and pressure , if pressure ok ,check flow, if flow is low replace fuel filter, If the fuel all checks ok .There is a relay that disables the injectors and petrol pump when on gas, this may be at fault.
My routine to check non-starting motors: (petrol/gas models)
Check immobilizer status
Check fuel supply -does it reach the fuel rail when starting. If not OK, check 12v supply to fuel pump when starting. If OK, fuel pump maybe dead.If not present, check fuel pump fuse and relay.
If fuel supply is OK, check spark ignition. If not OK, follow the supply circuit backwards to the ECM. Coils and/or ignition amplifier connector should have one 12v supply to it when ignition switch is on.
For Diesels with 'common rails' you can take same approach for fuel. No ignition testing possible. The diesel fuel pump still needs battery power. It will make some sound when IGN is on. If not, check ALL fuses and relays.
Hi dave hill, not really sure on your problem but I have a VN commodore that I purchased that had the fuel pump crook and did the same thing of not starting on petrol. Owner said to hold in lpg button when starting . I got the fuel pump replaced. Mechanic said it was caused by not running petrol through enough and running always on LPG.
Some times the extra amperage coming from the alternator the diesel motor will burn out the electrical components of a smaller vehicle. This is why you should never jump start your lawnmowers, motorcycles, or any small engine with a full size vehicle. Check your battery, then alternator, and keep tracing it back until you find the source of the problem.
you have probably got a blockage in either the fuel filter or carb,so first check filter,if ok check carb.take fuel line of carb turn engine over see if fuel comes out if it does then filter ok if not change filter,
