Charge/replaced battery.

Before turning key on, push throttle pedal to the floor and hold it there, then turn the key and try to crank engine for up to 20 seconds at a time.

Have been seeing many flooded cars in the cold weather lately.

If your try to start car with pedal to the floor and nothing, try the opposite, get a can of Starting Fluid, good 2 second shot into MAF opening once air filter has been removed.

Also if the engine sounds like it is spinning too fast, then you may have to pull plugs, put about a tablespoon of oil in each cylinder, turn engine over a few times, put plugs back and and see what happens.

Good luck!
