My 2008 Ford Escape will not start. The battery is okay because lights and radio works. It will not start when you turn on the ignition. What could be the problem?

could possibly be the problem
Check the battery, you might have enough voltage to have the lights on but not enough to crank over the car. Any local auto parts store will check it for free, or you can check it yourself with a voltmeter, should be 12.3 or higher. If it's the original battery, it's time for a new one, batteries usually are good for 4-6 years if taken care of.
This is not the case with my '08 hybrid. I just got the battery changed today, and it started fine. After going to five stores without a problem, it wouldn't start AGAIN. I get lights, everything, but the engine won't start. This is my only car, and I can't afford to be without it. It takes 4- 5 trys before it starts.
It's still won't start with new battery n starter
