Hi there. In most instances, when you have an issue where you turn the key and nothing happens, it’s caused by either an ignition relay or starter relay that is damaged. The relay sends an electrical signal to supporting components (like the starter, fuel pump and ignition system) when you turn the key or press the start button on cars with that option. However, it is also possible that is is a computer related problem. So, since there are multiple possible sources of this issue, it is probably best to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a car is hard to start inspection first. This will allow them to isolate the source of your problem and recommend the right repairs.
