My 2000 Vanden Plas won't turn over. I parked the car, which had never exhibited any similar issues in the past, and when I tried to crank it again, 8 hours later, it wouldn't start. The battery is good, and the instrument panel lights up, but when I turn the key, nothing happens. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

You may have a bad starter or ignition switch.
I just last week replaced alternator and battery at dealer, 3 days driving and now this happens. The loud click/snap is coming from engine compartment, seems like from underside of engine.
