Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that will cause a no crank condition and it will take some electrical testing to determine what is going on. The first thing that comes to mind if you hear no noise from the engine compartment would be a broken ignition switch actuator pin.

When you turn the key forward and back do you feel play before the resistance of the ignition switch?
