91 park avenue won't turn over

Ok boys and girls I just left my 1991 park avenue up at a convenience store because I pulled up, went inside, and came back out. I tried to start the
car but the car will not turn over at all. It has always run fine. It does have a security key which I inserted and removed several times. I tired to move it to neutral position and still nothing. The battery seems to be fine and all the lights work. I even tried jumping it in case the battery was low but nothing. Anybody got any ideas?

Check for neutral safety
Jump 12+V to the solenoid on the starter to get it to turn over. Sometimes a simple PRND21 --> 12DNRP movement will get it to engage.
If no luck on that & there isn't a supplementary security system on the car you might want to tow it home / to a garage, check the starter, the wiring, the ignition harness, etc, etc, etc..

Try a different key. If the chip goes bad on one, it will act that way. Replace the key, if so.

Could be your key, could also be your battery cables. You have a side terminal battery, unless you changed it, and if the cables get a bit loose you will not be able to start the car, and you will not be able to jump it until you tighten the bolts. I had the same problem on my 88 PA, and that is what was wrong.
