Welcome to AF.

So the car ran fine, and it shut off unexpectically while driving and now not starting? Are you positive there is no fuel and / or spark?

Firstly, check the battery to make sure it has proper voltage. I would check all the fuses and relays first. Would also check timing to make sure it didn't skip at some point and causing you to lose compression.

No The Car Ran And When i Shut it off and went 2 start it again it wouldnt start.i have checked all the fuses and they r fine.and i am positive that it isnt gettin spark or the fuel pump isnt kicking on.the fuel pump will only kick on if i run a 12+ volt from the battery.

I had the same issues once, the main engine fuse was blown under the hood. If thats not your problem then the ECU is not providing power to the pump, injectors, coil pack for some reason. Dont make much sense that it just stopped working one day but I would test cam position sensor. Crank position sensor, go ahead and test the map sensor while your at it.
