SOURCE: Car won't start
Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.

low oil boiling water sometime automatically stop the engine for further damage. stop the engine wait for sometime. fill up oil/water. check fuse/switches for engine/lights/dimmer. re start.

Either dead battery or bad fusible link. Charge the battery and if the lights do not come back, then check the fusible links (usually near the starter).

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it will gradually prevent the car to start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , this has been the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.
