Check your terminal connections, if they are loose they will need to be inspected for breaks. If they are broken you will need to replace the connection. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion.
Other possible Problems
If the car wont turn over your starter could be bad.
If it turns over but wont start it could be any number of these problems.

First try to reset alarm by inserting key in drivers door lock and lock and unlock-if this does not work try tail lock as well.

Starters don't click.
So remove push-on connector from Solenoid wire.
Should be clean, secure & relay bracket grounded.
Connect a jumper wire between battery positive terminal & the exposed terminal on the solenoid.
If starter motor now operates then it's the ignition switch.
If starter motor does not operate then replace solenoid.
