It sounds like you ignition switch went out. I had this happen to my wife a few years ago you turn the key the acceseries turn on but nothing else. this will be a trip to the dealer. did you happen to smell something electrical burning the last time you car was working if so it is the starter switch. you will need to take it to the deales an get a ne w switch which will also involve new keys$$$

Turn key just a clicking noise. Lights come on. Check engine light on


A weak battery will make the lights come on & energize the solenoid for the starter, but the battery is too weak to make the starter motor turn. Checking the battery would be first, the solenoid second.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

Car will not start


What does your dip stick show? Was the plug tight? Unless you knocked something loose and the engine doesn't turn at all, it sounds like a no oil seize.
