Check the ignition switch if it cranks but you get no dash warning lights. Poss. blown fuse/fusible link wire.

Did you check your battery? If you get no light on your dash coming on then it sounds like an electrical issue.

Check that your battery has correct voltage and that it is grounded correctly. Make sure the fittings are nice and tight and corrosion free.

If battery is fine, i'd look into the fuse box.
