Is the engine flooded? sometimes if the car has been started then stopped within a few minutes the engine can flood. Hold throttle to the floor and crank, it may fire up after a while. Other than that, there could be a multitude of reasons a car will crank but not start. Is there spark? Is there fuel? Is there compression? Are plugs, leads, cap, rotor arm, coil, fuel pump even a tripped inertia switch the problem. Need more info to help you.

Will a bad solenoid make no noise when you turn on ignition?

If your battery has a full charge, and NO noise is heard. It is most likely a lose or broken wire from the battery to ignition switch or from ignition switch to solenoid. A bad neutral switch may also be the problem or a blown fuse. A clicking noise would indicate bad solenoid contacts or a low battery charge. Although the a solenoid may be at fault, the other reasons are more likely. Note: On cars without automatic transmissions, check the clutch interlock switch.
