I had this exact problem, I put my car into neutral(absolutely important that it's in neutral if not the car could jump forward and run you over) and put the Parking Brake on, I took a screw driver, crawled under the front of the car, located the starter and used the screwdriver to short out the starter by pressing it against the 2 bolts, the starter spun then i got back in the car and started it like normal and i have not had that problem since(it's been about 5 months) Check to see if the engine is locked up. 2 reasons i can think of..one, have you installed a new ignition? and the other is the engine seized up. When mine did this it was because the starter was stuck. I got under the front end and found the starter and gave it a good whack. Car started fine after that.

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.
