If you mean you turn the key and nothing happens, then it's either a bad starter or weak battery. First test the battery and make sure it's fully charged. If the battery is 5 years old or so, you should replace it. If car is in your yard, jack up the front of the car. Locate the starter. Have someone hold the key to the ON position like they are starting the car. While they hold the key, you rap on the starter with a hammer. If the car suddenly turns over, then your starter is bad.
