When you go to start it there is nothing, not even cranking over.

The battery is good, starter is good. Yesterday my security light was coming on as well as low fuel. The night before I slept in the van and I kept starting it to keep battery from going dead and to have heat (was watch a movie in it. I went to start it and nothing. I believe I ran it low on fuel but I put 15 dollars in it yesterday and it still says low fuel. Like I said it was flashing low fuel and security? Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Either the battery is drained or the security system is triggerre and not allowing you to crank. Try a jump start to see if it works.

The security system is triggerred. Try closing all doors and using the key to lock unlock and retest.
