The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. Have helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.
You may also need to check compression. I need something to hang my hat on, to troubleshoot. Can you communicate with computer?
Were you having this problem before you changed the cable?
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Also, check for fuel injector pulse.
Can you check for applicable trouble codes?
I'd suggest getting a chilton or Haynes book for your car first. Very handy! If no spark, you can test the coil with an ohmmeter, and test wires to it. Another possibility is wires to crankshaft position sensor shorted, or sensor is bad. This sensor tells computer when to fire, and if bad, you get no spark situation. Also check any fuses that have to do with ignition.
does it crank but not start or does it just click like dead battery or starter if it cranks check for spark and fuel pull spark plug wire and insert a screw driver and hold it close to an engine ground and have someone try to crank the engine is there a strong spark and use what is called a noid light it plugs into the plug for the injectors to see if the injectors are pulsing it should blink when you try too too start the engine if you have pulse and spark check for fuel pressure there should be a service port on the fuel rail that looks like a valve stem for a tire sort of youll need a fuel pressure tester if you had no spark or pulse at tthe injectors its most likely either the cam sensor crank sensor or the computor(pcm) if only no spark change the coil if that doesnt work you might need an ignition module but that requires more testing I cant explain here see a technician if no fuel pressure remove fuel filter drain and attemp to blow air through it if you cant its clogged replace and try vehicle if no start still feul pump is bad replace pump .
