Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition. You could have a bad ignition switch, it may be the starter, wiring, a transmission range sensor related issue, cables and connections, or it could definitely be an immobilizer issue.

Do you hear any noise from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position?
