Hi there. The two quick things to check. First, the ignition switch may be faulty and the contact point for the start position may be out. The second thing to check would be the starter relay. You can simply test this by listening for a clicking sound. If it does not click, then the starter relay is bad. If you need an expert to pinpoint the problem for you, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the starting issue and follow through with repairs.
