If no fuel pump noise then its not working and before i even started i would check the immobilisor by trying the spare key first as you would be surprissed how many call outs i do where they have lost the chip out of the key or had it in their pocket with a mobile phone that wipes the chip .If no spark as well then its the immobilisor for sure

Tips for a great answer:
Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities.
It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then
it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure
or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty
ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

There are some
possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check
the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact
12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the
battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained
and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the
car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the
spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new
then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil
3) The other thing to
check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is
charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the
car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not
4) The other thing to
check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check
the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the
fuel filter above the fuel pump.
Keep updated if anymore query .Thanks.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
