    First make sure the battery cables are clean and tight, Sometimes a starter will freeze in position and tapping it with a small hammer will free a starter, then it also could be the ignition switch has failed.

    had to have car towed to nearest dealer, and they checked battery and all connections.
    After towing it there and having it sit overnight, the dealer went to check it out and it started right up.
