I'd check for bad or corroded contacts/cables from battery to starter (If your vehicle is older than 14 years). If that looks good I'd be suspicious of the solenoid in your starter sticking(will probable need a new starter).
Have you tried jump starting it?
is there twelve Volta at the battery when you try to start it?
Is there 12 volts on the small wire on the starter when you try to start it?
Have You tried replacing the battery?
If the battery is good, there is power to the starter on the large wire, and power on the small wire when the key is in the start position than replace the starter.
All the alternator does is supply power to the vehicle after the vehicle is started and recharge the battery. It doesn't have anything to do with the car not starting.
I should add that I would make sure the engine turns over by hand. If there was a problem with the engine not turning over you should at least hear a single click from the starter which it doesn't sound like that is happening.
Let me know what you find mate!
I have not worked on a talon specifically, but in 99% of passenger cars, the starter is located on the bottom of the engine near the front of the transmission housing on the side where the battery is located. It is going to be a a cylindrical black, or grey and black part about the size of a large can of beans or something. It will be right up against the transmission housing. ALWAYS a good idea to disconnect the battery before working on this. It may take some work to get it out. On some cars, it is as easy as undoing two easily accessible bolts and the power cable. On one car, I had to remove the front tire and access the top bolt through a hole in the wheel well (but that was an older car, the newer ones seem to be a bit easier). Good luck.
if it doesn't turn over, its the battery or the starter.
Don't think that because the lights and radio work that the battery is good. Lights and radio need 15 amps; the starter needs 200 - 300 amps, and the battery may have reached the end of its useful life
just an idea but i would look around the nighber hood and see if there is someone who starts there car remotely, your car may have the same frequancy as there's, so they are starting both cars with the same remote.
