want even click when you turn on the ignition.  The battery cant be jumped
either.  All of the ding dings from door being opened, seat belt and radio all
work.  It doesnt even click when you try to start it.

what is the voltage on the battery? if it is low enough, you will not be able to jump the car. Also check your battery cables for splits, cracks and corrosion. Also the wiring to the starter.

Most newer cars will not engage the starter if the voltage is below a certain point. The older cars would give you a warning that the battery was low......they would crank slowly. As noted above, put a charger on the battery to get fully charged. It will probably start, then you need to check the condition of the battery and output of the alternator if you want it to be reliable.
