Unless you have a manual transmission and a hill so that you can roll start the car - no.

Try bypassing the solenoid relay mounted on the fender well, near the battery (if equipped).

Disconnect small black plug connector at relay on fender wall and mementary jump from battery side terminal to stud where the plug was connected to on the relay and try it, if it works, u have a bad igniton switch, if this doesn't start it, bypass relay momentary, if this works, u have a bad relay, if it still doesn't crank over, replace starter
