Default 99 Audi A4 Starting Problems

OK, this is the 1st time this has happened to me. I ran into McDonalds real quick and then I came back out to my car and it won't start. It doesn't even turn over. But all of the gauges and lights, heat and music turn on but the car WONT EVEN turn over. Please help me. Any ideas? THANKS!

well 1st you have to ask some to try to start while you listen if there is any click on the starter. may be starter is gone. if no then check fuses or put yur transmission in on N and pull brake then try again.may be yur safty swith is stuck.

I say its the alternator. If all your electrical turns on (radio, dash lights, heat etc) you're getting current and if you hear a small clacking noise when you turn the ignition then maybe its your starter. Did any of you guys' battery light come on before this happened?
