It is quite possible this may just simply be a dead battery. The starter typically will give some kind of warning sign prior to completely failing out of nowhere. In some cases this is also misdiagnosed as a failing alternator or potentially a starter relay (this is often times noticeable by a clicking sound when trying to start it) I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your no start issue to provide a second opinion.
