V6 won't start

My 3.0 24v wouldn't start this morning. It turns over normally but the engine just doesn't catch, not even a splutter.

I'm guessing it can only be lack of fuel or lack of sparks. It has occasionally done this before but always starts normally after a few tries, not today though.

Any suggestions anyone ? What's the betting it'll work fine if I call the AA ?

Does it have a fuel cut-off switch under the passenger seat? If so, give it a press, it might be the problem.

Might be a faulty crankshaft sensor or could even be a blown fuse for fuel pump or ecu

Any warning lights? Probably fuel pump or fuel injection switch . Otherwise alternator/battery.
