The best approach is to get a diagnostic trouble code which may be stored in the engine control module. It may work that you can get the "code" if you try the ignition switch. Turn it "on-off-on-off-on and leave on" doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer to see if the mileage reading is replaced by a 4-digit number preceded by a P. If so, tell us what the number is.
If that doesn't work then you can buy an inexpensive code reader that plugs into a 16-pin plug under the dash next to the steering column. That approach will get the diagnostic code that we need to figure out what to do.

"P done", if that is what showed up on the odometer, I believe means that there were no fault codes found by the engine control module. It may be that there is a code none the less but a plug in code reader may be necessary to find out what it is. In the meantime, I would suggest that you listen to hear the fuel pump run for about one second when you turn the key "run" position and then again when you try the start listen to hear the fuel pump run again for as long as you are cranking over the engine but then it will stop when the engine dies on its own accord or you stop cranking it over. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank so have a helper operate the key while you listen to the tank area at the rear of the vehicle.
Without some sort of a fault code there is no easy way to know what to try. Perhaps one of the other experts here will give you some ideas, But I am at a loss given the "P done" as to what to suggest. I assume that your gas gauge is accurate and the you haven't simply run out of gas.
