first thing to check is for fuel supply, blocked fuel filter, pump ect if this is ok it could be a sensor eg cam or crank without seeing the car its hard to say.

dont want to sound bad but check the simple things first like throttle cables and throttle bodies see if when you press the pedal its all moving freely in the engine bay if the throttle is not connected up properly then it wont start as it wont draw the fuel through if you look at your rev counter when it is idleing then your needle should be sat at 0.9 rpm next move on to your air filter if its just the standard one it is only held on by four clips pull it off and make sure that its still fairly clean and there are no blockages in the surrounding pipe work.
none of these things show up on a diagnostic machine as they are not connected to the ecu.
good luck and dont give up
