Is it that when you turn the key, the engine turns over like normal starting, but it will not fire and start running? Is that what you are trying to say?

I assume it has been sitting throughout the winter.... With that said, the first thing I would check on; have someone kneeling down close to the gas tank. Then turn the key to the on position but do not try to start it. A faint "whirring" sound should be able to be heard as the fuel pump primes the injectors, it will only run a very short time and stop. If no sound is heard there could be fuel pump problems. The fuel pump is electric and in the tank.

if you hear the fuel pump running for a few seconds, then next go to the engine compartment and (if possible) remove the intake from the throttle body side off the air cleaner. With someone watching, again, turn the key to the on position and press your foot on the gas pedal. You should be able to see the butterfly valve plate move.

What I just mentioned are issues which have been known to happen in the triton series engine.

Beyond that, a systematic check to find out if you are getting spark, etc. If, you are the type to work on it yourself. If not, take it to a reputable mechanic.

2014 Melborne Will not Crank

This actually happened back in November as we were getting it ready for winter. My husband filled it up, put it in its spot, did all the winterization like normal. Couple weeks later he needed to move it to get a motorcycle trailer out of the backyard and it would not crank. We have checked fuses, talked with Dealer who suggested banging on the gas tank. Everyone seems to think it is the fuel pump which unfortunately has 55 gallons of fuel in the tank. We were hoping there might be a fuel reset button we could try but we are unable to locate it. It turns over just will not actually crank...like it's not getting fuel.
