Have you tried shaking the steering wheel as you try to turn the key? Sometimes it gets caught like that..

Yes, I took it to my mechanic he ran a diagnosis and turns out there was no power coming from the fuel pump/ no ignition was happening. He also said that I needed the camshaft sensor which I finally ordered today
