Welp, that's vague. btw
Do you have an monitoring device? Cause if not, we're shooting in the dark here.
Quick ideas, bad battery/batteries: load test each one individually.
Bad battery connections. Clean no matter what.
Weak alternator. Check voltage once it's warmed up.
Bad/going bad FICM. Idk how to test it, but there are threads on here how to.

Thank u I guess I was a little vague the batteries have plenty of juice I should have said it will crank but won't fire I also forgot to say I put an edge tuner on it for fuel efficiency and that made it smoke a fair amount but I have since programed back to stock and now I just have it there to monitor there are no codes I have heard it could be a bunch if thugs so I am lost
