If the car was stored outside with no hood on it for any length of time while the shop was working on it, chances are it got wet in places it normally would not. Any small amounts of corrosion in pin terminals would then have had a chance to deteriorate to the point that contact is lost.(I don't know if this is the case, but I have seen it happen too often to not mention it) Either way, every plug on every wire connection needs to be checked for continuity betweeen the pin itself and its attending wire, at both ends.I'd begin by putting a clean properly gapped new set of plugs in there and spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking. If it starts, then I would concentrate on items that operate the fuel system...you will then be looking at the pump, pump relay and its wiring and power supply...once operation there is established, move to fuel management items such as injectors etc. Even though you won't see any relevant codes in the computer make sure that you have the ability to read them...no signal from the computer is a power or ground problem that also needs correction. It may take some time, but by going through everything Item by item you will find your problem. It also would be really nice if you could find someone with a "donor" car to use as a map for connections and proper readings.(I have several manuals but in "real life" I've found that the information isn't as accurate as what I obtain from a real running car.) Too bad you aren't here...I have a similar car sitting in my driveway. Good luck.
