If it turns over and almost catches there are quite a few things it can be, your best bet is to have a diagnostics done, it will be cheaper than process of elimination.

Two people here to test it; while
another person tries to start it, lightly hit the starter and see if it
starts to work. If it does start working, then the starter is
defective. If it don't start cranking over then check your battery cables
for damage, lose or corrosion. 99% bet first at starter go to bad; 2nd possibilitie the ignition switch.
Confirm if you can hear the fuel pump come on when you first turn the key on? like a humm? Do you know what the fuel pressure is? Does it have spark to the spark plugs?
Keep us updated.

You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

Hi, this sounds like a bad fuel pump. I would have the fuel pressure checked. Sometimes Autozone will let you borrow a fuel pressure gauge to check your fuel pressure. Just unscrew the cover from the pressure port on the fuel rail and screw on the pressure gauge. Put a rag over your hand while screwing it on to avoid getting fuel sprayed around. Lay the gauge in a safe place and start the car. Read the gauge, record the reading, turn the car off and remove the gauge. If the pressure is less than 35 psi, you need a new fuel pump. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
