battery or batter connection most likely if not them then it will be the starter a low battery will still run some level of lights and radio and even wont jump

re: Car won't start even with a jump, lights and radio work though
Are your terminals clean? Is your battery cable frayed? If you have a solid connection and a solid cable it might be the starter. You also could have gotten bad gas which is keeping it from starting. Did you JUST fill up from empty or near empty? That happened twice to my fiancée from the same damn station...it was driving me nuts that I couldn't figure out what was wrong but it just turned out to be bad gas.

By Start- Will it not Roll Over?
If it is not rolling over, starter, solenoid, or battery issue.

It can be corrosion or even a connection that has worked itself loose over time.

How much do starters run for ?

Does it start if you jump it? If it does you can rule out a lot. you could just have a bad battery...if it starts with a jump that is probably the issue.

I had the same issue but nothing would happen when I turned the key. Even after jumping it. Turned out to be the whole damn computer. I hope for your sake it isn't that.

He needs to try jumping it before anyone can even pretend to figure out what is wrong.

i had a buick that had double connectors on one battery post and they would always work loose and would kill the car about every two weeks i could never tighten them enough so i finally stripped the insulation off and hard bolted them to the batter post

My POS car does this all the time especially when it rains

Just wiggle the wire connected to the starter and itll work fine

make/model.. I have an f150, mine did something similar. Try putting it in neutral and starting it.
