Why isnt my 328i not starting

My car all of a sudden won't start. I tried jumping it, and nothing. All lights

I would start seeing if your car is getting any fuel. My 330i had the same problem. I sprayed starter fluid into the intake and the car started for a few seconds so I knew it was the fuel. If that's the case you need to check if the fuel pump is getting power or if the fuel pump went out. You can find articles online on how to check and change these.

As with any car that won't start, check for fuel, air, and spark. Do you hear the fuel pump engaging when you turn the key to the "on" position?

Yes it's getting fuel but won't start at all

I push the start button but it does not turn over or click is there a fuse or a reset to the starter

That might be something worth looking into... check your owner's manual. Does anything happen at all when you push the start button?
