Why won't my car start?

So I was doing an srs diagnostic on my car after watching a youtube tutorial. I received the codes, and all seemed ok. However, when I tried to start my car, it wouldn't start. The guy in the video said if you don't jump the correct components, this could happen. He said it could be blown fuses or any other electrical component. My fuses seem to be fine. I believe I did jump the correct components because I received two codes. So do you have any idea why my car won't start? When I turn the key, the lights come on, there is no clicking or any sound. Please help.
Do you
have the same problem?

The car doesn't make any noise when I try to start it. It doesn't try to turn over or anything. All the lights come on, so I know it's not the battery.

I was not suggesting it was thebatterry. If you remove the cable the computer will reset and maybe start your car

You could have triggerred the security system which is preventing it from starting. Is the security light in dash blinking when you try to crank?

Is the gear shift P or N indicator light showing?

So I went to an autozone, and they believe it is a problem with the immobolizer. Are you able to reset the immobolizer?

You would need appropriate scan tool to reset the immobilizer.

If you have a spare key, try using it to see if it works.
