Hello - sorry to hear of your problem. If I understand you - when you turn the key nothing happens - no sound no nothing. Not sure if you have an automatic so think safety. Try putting jumper cables to the starter. So ground the black, red end goes right to the starter on the same nut the main red wire is on. If the starter kicks in then it may be your ignition switch or key reminder switch. Check the ignition one first. You didn't specify if it was a ES or so I am giving you information on the ES. You wil get several messages as I can only attach one pic at a time.
