Hello I have a 2001 chevy cavalier and yesterday morning I tried to start my car and turned over the key and it did absolutely nothing. There was no clicking or winding noises only noise I heard was my fuel pump kicking on. All my lights are working normal and so is my radio. I tried jumping it just to make sure it wasn't an issue with my battery but it still wouldn't start. What could be the problem?

I would check the ignition switch. There is a rod going from your key switch to the ignition switch located on the steering column. A new ignition switch is relatively inexpensive at Auto Zone or Oreilly's. Good luck.
