Look at the big cables that attach to your battery. If they look really filthy or have white corrosion growing on them you might have a bad connection. They can actually look pretty good and still have a bad connection. They should be marked in the battery case itself with a + and a -, or POS and NEG. If you can, put on a glove like you might use to clean up something a dog left behind, then grab the cable that goes to the POS or + and give it a good shake. Then try the key again. If it starts go straight to a local mechanic and have them clean the terminals.
