Smile 1996 nissian maxima

I parked my 1996 Nissian Maxima in the garage and now it won't start at all. The battery has a good charge but when I turn the switck nothing happens. All my lights on the dash work and the the alarm will set and disarm but nothing when I try to start the engine. I was thinking the ignition switch has gone bad but there was no warning and I tried to start the car five minutes after I parked it. Any Ideas.

A little more info, robo.

Do the lights dim when you turn the key and/or are there any sounds like clicks, clunks, etc? Possibility you have a bad park/neutral safety switch (auto trans) or clutch safety switch (manual trans). You might try shifting out of park and back and wiggle the shift lever around if it's automatic..
