If the engine cranks but does not start, it may be caused by a tripped inertia switch. Switch the key to "ON" and the fuel pump should be heard running for a second or two. Listen at the gas filler if necessary. If you do not hear the pump the inertia switch should be reset, it will "click" when it is reset.

    Wouldn't start after a 20 minute drive. Thirty minutes later, it started fine. Drove it to repair garage where it sat overnight. Garage staff reports it ahas started fien everytime they've looked at it. They ran tests on fuel pump, checked filter, still starting fine. I hate problems like this.,
