When the key is put in and turned to start it,
everything works fine inside. Lights, radio

Your anti theft system is the problem most likely. Try the other key.

Alternator is bad

I had this just recently happen to me. I have a brand new battery (less than 3 months old). You need a new fusible link that attaches to the battery. It costs about 20.00 at the dealership. Takes less than 10 minutes to install. I replaced this after 12 years and car is cranking and working perfectly.
