What could cause your car to not start and have no other sounds?

it depends on the year of the car, but on some older American models there is a relay switch (about a $3.00 part) that goes out and makes the car appear "dead". most back yard mechanics will insist it's the battery or alternator, but if your car has a relay switch I would spend the couple of bucks and replace it first.
