Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no crank condition and it will take some testing to determine what is going on. You could have a bad ignition switch or a body controller issue, it could be an engine controller problem, wiring, the starter, or transmission range sensor related. If you see a security light flashing then it could be a security related issue.

Do you hear no noise from the engine compartment when trying to start it?
