Hi..there..

Could likely be the starter motor has gone or jammed.if the immobliser has kicked in then you should have warning flashing on the dash.car/spanner/padlock..you could try another key if you have one..further to that you'll need to test if power is reaching the starter ideally aswell as power is getting to it once the key is turned using a multimeter or test light..you could of course with a power probe send battery voltage to the starter trigger wire on the solenoid and see if it spins the engine over..that way you'll know either way if the starter is at fault or not
