Question about 2005 Suzuki Reno
Two common possibilities; no fuel or no spark.
Neither of these are that tough to check.
Pull any one of the spark plug leads off of the plug. Position it so the open end is close to the engine block, chassis or other obviously electrically grounded point. Have someone crack the engine for several seconds while you watch for spark. If the insulator is very deep, you may not see one and then you need to stick (carefully) a screwdriver into the plug and watch the shaft of it for spark. If you have a spark, put the lead back on the plug.
Now, finding a point to check for fuel. Most fuel injected cars have a connector (port) on or near the fuel rail that supplies the injectors with fuel. It looks a lot like a tire valve but different size and DON'T confuse the Air Conditioning connectors - you would be bleeding off refrigerant. If you can't tell the difference, ask a friend. Either of these connectors may have a cap over the valve.
After a start-attempt is made, there should be pressure in the fuel line. Once you have found the right port, with you face turned away or protected, briefly press the valve's center pin to see if it will squirt fuel.
If you have fuel, then I think you are better off having the car looked at since there are several things that could now be at fault and it would require more knowledge (and a little equipment) to pursue them.
