Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause a no start condition and it will require some electrical testing to determine what is wrong. The problem coudl be security related, it could be the starter itself, the ignition switch, cables and connections, it may just be a dead battery.

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