check your starter. The 2.8L enigines tend to have the main points cable rot off over time and cause this issue.if you don't have a skid plate under the car it should be visable with a flashlight. Use a set of car ramps if you have them so you can get under the car

It's not the starter it won't start or any cranking noise. But the light and air work

ok so then you either have an electrical or ignition issue. if your car has the battery gauge on the dash whats it sitting at when you turn power on? also when you turn the power one (key forward one click) is there an key icon in your dash that lights up? immobilizers are installed in cars with this icon and the key may have gotten unsynced from the car.
