My car did this, and it was because the starter wire came undone. Check if you're getting spark, and also check the battery and/or the alternator. Have you tried pop starting it?

Sounds like your alternator might be going out. Charge the battery that you have in there right now and try again. Let us know what happens...

Ghetto start the car and disconnect the battery....if the car dies its your alternator if it stays alive then its good.
