Try a jump start and see if it works.

Ensure the security system is not triggered. It can occur when the battery is weak or you have a poor connections ate the battery terminals and repeated cranking would cause it to do so.

Starters can fail without warning. Give the starter some knocking with a mallet to see if it works.
