Impossible to determine without *hands-on* testing so the actual failure can be discovered.

1- Ignition spark test
2- Fuel delivery / pressure test

Good luck!

(This is assuming the engine is CRANKING ok - but will not START) ?

You posted both - will not crank AND will not start (?)

There is a significant difference!

Now - IF the engine will not CRANK - it is possibly a battery or charging system failure.
