I need some help!!

This morning i went to go start my car and of course it didn't start. As I'm trying to figure out what issue it actually is I'm getting more and more upset. All i need is some honest advice and help! So when i turn the key the heat, lights, everything turns on but when i turn the ignition to start it, its silent. when its turned all the way it seems everything else kinda shuts off till the key is turned back. I don't have a block heater since i haven't had time to get one ( but i didn't think it was cold enough out yet for it to not start since when i lived in bc it got this cold and started fine). what im really wondering is what it is. a frozen ignition/starter? maybe i need a block heater ( since my car sits on the street and also is sitting on snow) or my fuel pump? or what? I did try a boost but i had a feeling that wasn't the case.. it didn't work. its a new battery, new spark plugs..
please help!

My car did that when i first got it, if i recall it was the ignition switch... But it could be other things ( main relay, igniter, starter, etc) im sure you will get some good advice these next few days from some of the other guys. I am also having a weird starting problem and having trouble figuring it out

have your battery tested as if its too cold your battery may not start it harder on a old battery.

I'd start with making sure your battery terminals are secure and corrosion free. Then test the voltage, you should be at 12.5-12.7 volts with the car off.

If all that checks out, turn the key the and see if you hear the fuel pump priming.

Report back with your results.

my legend does that when the connection the battery goes bad. I just remove the cable to the battery, brush off the crude, put it back on, and get it real tight. Then it works just fine!
