does the car crank at all? maybe the battery has died? have you tried to jump start it ?
try jump starting the car and see if it helps, then if it does you may need the battery replaced, also have the alternator tested. if you have more than one key try both keys, if the battery is good and the jump start does not help, you may have a bad ignition switch, let me know if any of this is helpful. i will do what i can to help. Lou. Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
