Check the anti-theft device. Got out of my daughters 99 in the summer and ran into the store. Came out and nothing. Seems you have to cycle the lock-unlock key fob if the door is opened then closed.

It does not crank over, it makes no noise. What do you mean by cycle the lock-unlock key fob?

If you have a key fob, with the door closed, pressed the button to lock and door, then press the button to unlock the door. They try it.
