What exactly is happening when you turn the key? Is the engine cranking, or are you getting a click? The battery may be a little low on power.

I get a click and the power windows work, the lights work but it doesn't turn over

Is the check engine light on? You might have codes if this isn't battery related. But it sounds like the battery just doesn't have enough voltage to turn the engine over. If you have a multimeter, you can check the voltage. You should have around 12.6 volts. Or you can bring the battery to AutoZone to have it tested.

Try tapping on the starter and see if it tries to crank.
