Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause a no start condition I'm assuming that the starter isn't engaging at all. Lack of starter engagement coudl be caused by a low battery, the ignition switch or actuator, the starter, the powertrain control module may not be awake.

Do you get a single click from the engine compartment when the key is turned to the crank position? A rapid clicking?
