Question about Cars & Trucks
1-Battery is high enough to power dash and lights but to weak to turn the engine.
2-Computer may be sending an error message to the ignition system, sometimes legit, but quite often just a glitch.
3-Ground wire has came loose, small black cable under the hood attached to the car body or frame. In many cars, that one wire dis-connected will cause exactly what you're describing.
If that's not it,
4-You should try removing the battery for a few minutes, to re-set the computer, or you may have to do that manually, consult the owners manual before trying either of the last two. Hope I helped. Grimm

Does your keyless remote works? Good connection from battery (-) to ground (black cable)? Also the imobilizer can be faild sometimes (antitheft)

I had this same exact problem in a family member's Saturn. If you are opening the door with the key and not using the key FOB to unlock the doors, then the security system will not allow you to start the car. You will notice when this happens that the dome light will blink and you'll hear the relay in the BCM clicking.
In order to stop the security system from doing this: Make sure the car is locked with the key fob by hitting the lock button. Then hit the unlock button on the key fob once and then once again (I do it out of habit). Then open the driver side door, put the key in and it should start no problem.
