2003 Mustang GT cranks but won't start

My Mustang last ran (flawlessly) a month ago. Just charged the battery and it cranks and cranks but not a hint any attempt to fire up. There is a quarter a tank of gas. It is almost as though there is some electrical cut out preventing ignition. There is no smell of gas so don't think anything is flooding.

I have never worked on this car. In the old days I would pull a spark plug and see if it fires - now I can't even find a spark plug!

Any help would be appreciated.

Disconnecting the battery activates the anti-theft (PATS) on late model cars.

You didn't mention it, but what is the theft light doing? Blinking?

Try locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key. If you have a key FOB, lock and unlock with the FOB.

Turn the key on but do not crank, Listen for the fuel pump to run for 3 seconds. If you do not hear the fuel pump run, Stop and find out why.

Confirm that the theft light goes out after a 3 second prove out. If not, STOP and find out why.

Does it start now?
