i believe its the fuel relay, heard it overheats easily... but i have the same problem, wait a little bit, when you turn the key to position two... you should hear a whirrrrr and a click... if you hear neither, it won't start, just wait a little bit or just don't turn it off

Like Kitten says, turn the key to II - pause there instead of twisting directly to 'start'. Listen for the fuel pump to run for about 2 seconds. It's not real loud, so you may have to listen in the trunk or at the gas cap.

Search for 'main relay'. You'll find some instructions about repairing some poorly-made solder joints. Or just buy a new relay if you're not good with a soldering gun.

LaminatedKitten: that could possibly cause some of your starting issues/running issues (as mentioned on a previous post as well) sounds like you may both be a victim of this problem. Luckily it's pretty cheap/easy to fix
