Default PT DIED

looking for help, I saw a few posts about car dying but mine seems a bit different. i was driving and it just cut out. When you go to start it nothing happens. No click or sound at all. Battery is all fine as well just wont turn over at all. Tried to get codes and nothing shows up not even DONE. Any ideas

How do we know the battery is ok? Dose anything light up? What happens to everything when you turn the key to start?
Also a little history and stats of your car, Year, n/a or turbo, mileage, and any recent work.

Well yours has less miles on it than ours does but I'm gonna say battery cables. Either check or replace them, DVOM would be best if you don't want to replace them out the gate.
