Hi there. From the description you have provided, starting it 3 times in a row and on the 4th time, a no crank situation, it is possible that the battery has failed. Sometimes, a battery will fail without notice. It could be corroded or loose battery terminals creating the no crank situation or the starter failing after repeated testing.

With all of the possibilities, I recommend you have the fact that your vehicle is not cranking be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
