Dear Pulling hair out,
Without knowing what you have done to the vehicle, here are some ideas.
My first question would be, does the vehcile crank and try to start but just not catch? If this is true and you think the timing belt may be the problem then as you're cranking you should notice that the engine is cranking way too fast and seems to have no reisistance. It may be hard to tell if you haven't heard this before.
An engine needs air, fuel and spark to run. If any of these things are missing, then the vehcile will not start. It may be possible that the electrical parts are working but the injectors are not. It's hard to say without seeing the vehicle.
There is no easy way for me to tell you how to check the timing belt. It sounds like you need to have a technician look at your vehicle.
