    It could be a failed starter (it's in an awkward place under the intake manifold), I have see the mechanical part of the ignition switch fail (key rotates in switch but doesn't start), it could be many things but without proper diagnostic tests anything is only a guess.

    open large fuse box in engine compartment, while someone is cranking the engine over tap on all the relays (black 1.25" sq things in fuse box) it should start
