    Had a similar problem 3 months ago. But was easy to diagnose as I could not hear the fuel pump start up when I switch the ignition to start position (before cranking position). Turned out to be a burnt out connector to the pump.

    Just make sure you can hear the fuel pump whir before you crank, to make sure it's not the pump problem (as what Martin said earlier).
