Agreed, check battery terminals to see that they are tight, free of corrosion, and that the cables are not cracked. Sounds like it's not getting power to the starter.

Check the MAF sensor same thing happened to mine the MAF sensor cord was bad. Try unplugging it and then starting it if it starts that was your problem
