Could be few different problems first u need to check for fuel pressure and spark
hook a fuel pressure gauge up and see if ur getting any fuel pressure if you have no fuel pressure u either have bad pump or out of gas (don't laugh i had cars come in shop for a no start that where just out gas)
if u have fuel pressure
then check for spark
take one spark plug wire of a spark plug and hold wire about 1/4 inch away from either the spark plug or engine block if u see a spark or hear one
if you have no spark your looking at a few different possibles Bad coil, ignition module, crank sensor, etc
if you have fuel pressure and spark but still no start u need to check for injector pluse (basically computer telling fuel injectors to open)
but now i think I'm getting over your head let me know if this helps and i try to walk u threw other things if this dont help

Car turns over but it wont start it just dies


If the car turns over and starts,and dies faster than you can let go of the key,then the ignition module is most likely the problem.

Car ignition wont start or turn


Could be a bad lock cylinder or broken ignition switch (under the dash on top of the steering column). If you disconnect the switch from the control rod that comes from the cylinder and the cylinder turns you need a new switch.
