Make sure all the connections to the battery are tight. Try jump starting it with another car. The battery may be strong enough to light the lights, but not strong enough to turn the starter. If not there are several possibilities including a problem with the ignitions switch or a failed starter. Sounds like it might be time to have it towed in to a shop for a professional appraisal. Don't start spending money on parts until you actually figure out what's wrong.

Switch on the headlights and try to start it. Do the headlights go out or dim badly? If so it's going to be battery related. A dead battery or a bad battery connection. If the headlights stay nice and bright it's going to be the starter, neutral safety switch, or ignition switch. HTH. -Jim
