Try taking it out of park and putting it back or try in neutral. To see if it is the park switch. Make sure any security features are shut off. Make sure key fob batteries are good. Hope this helps.

It wont start ot turn over when you turn the key it dont even make a sound

Do any of the interior light work? Does the radio work? If the answer is no, then the first thing to check is the battery and its connections.
If lights, radio and other things work, then you could have a problem with ignition switch, starter solenoid, starter or a wiring issue.

Thermostat lights wont come on

Check the in dash lights to see if they are burnt out or you have a bad connection or bad wire. this could be do to having an after market sound system.I had similar problems with a 97 Plymouth Breeze i.e. loose connection.
