There are a few different scenarios that could contribute to your car not starting. The first piece of information that I would need to know is the condition of the battery. If the battery is unable to hold a charge or if it has been drained, it will not have the proper amperage to allow the starter to turn the engine over. However, if the battery is good, we will want to know what happens when we attempt to start the vehicle. Are there any sounds? If they are not or if you only hear maybe a click, it is possible the problem lies with the starter or the wiring to the starter. If your engine turns over but does not start, more variables are then needed to be taken into account. These include whether your car has spark and fuel. Unfortunately with such limited information this is a situation that is best to let a certified mechanic to inspect and diagnose the cause for the no start.
