Well it's definately an electrical issue, but I can't figure out what exactly it could be. Double check everything under the hood until one of the geniuses on here come help you out.

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

a buddy of mine said it might be the solenoid. or maybe the ignition switch. my dad said it might just be one of the main fuses.

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

i had the same issue when i bought my car a long time ago, i tried everything, then i started wiggling some wire harness under the steering wheel. idk, try that, mine was just loose, maybe yours is too. just move some of the cables under the steering wheel area and try turning it.

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

Try your main battery fuse, located under the hood (in the fuse box) Look to see if the copper is still attached inside the fuse :D

Edit: Oh and btw, first off check to see, does your windows roll up or down? dose your doors lock with the lock that locks both locks at the same time? sunroof? power mirrors? if these don't work then check^

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

Is the starter clicking? O what you said you have nothing....Your ignition switch might be bad.

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

Ok start over man. Are you saying you can turn your key and nothing happens? Or will then key not turn at all. Your post is unclear to give any kind of real help to. Clear that up and I'll be more then happy to help u out.

Re: i need help RIGHT NOW!

I also vote for one of the main fuses. If not then I would say ignition switch. It has to be one of those.
