sounds like your starter, some times if you get under neath the car and hit the starter a few times with a rubber mallet or a hammer. It will break free if its froze up, but if it won't turn over after doing that then your starter is toast. If the starter goes it sometimes takes out the battery too. so you might need a new one as well.
