My 1985 Holden commodore wont start at all. What should i do?

I mean when i used the key to start the car first it all was well. Although a few seconds later the car automatically switched off. Although this is natural (as it it happens alot due to coldness), so when i started again it the power came on although the motor doesnt seem to do anything. I checked the fuses + battery although they were just fine. What could be the problem? Is there any solution that you guys can come up with? (also i need to go to work in about 6hrs time so i need advice fast)

Thanks guys

Edit: btw its an auto

is it in park? cause if it isnt it has a safety switch that stops the car from starting. My bro has done this before and i was stumped for ages until i put it into park.

Also check ur spark and see if fuel is actually getting into the engine (is there fuel in the tank?) Is the starter motor cranking over?
