There are dozens of failures that could prevent your car from starting. Very likely an electrical problem. Do the lights come on? The door warning requires almost no power so you could have a bad battery or alternator.

Your battery is OK because your car beeps when the door is open, did everything die slow? It's probably your alternator.

I'd try charging that battery and testing it or boosting that vehicle and if it's boosted but dies right away then either the battery or alternator or both are bad more then likely.If you can get a voltage meter you could test the voltage at the battery posts , it should be at least 12 volts or above without the car running and once it's started the voltage should be up around 13.7 or so but if in the high 14/s or in the 15 volt range the voltage is regulator isn't any good but remember if lower then 13.7 that could also mean the voltage regulator or alternator isn't any good.

If it doesn't start via a boost or by changing or charging the battery,test for spark and gas and make sure the spark plugs are checked and cleaned or replaced and also that spark-plug wires , air filter are checked and replace the gas filter, also I'd treat the fuel with something like STP or Lucas fuel treatment.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way besides testing and charging the battery , you should also have the charging system tested and cleaned.Start with the battery posts and terminals , then the starter , alternator, engine block ground , plus all the grounds , disconnect them one by one clean them with a wire brush , sandpaper , file and be sure you clean the screws and bolts and the o-ring wire connectors.On such an old vehicle cleaning the charging system is vital but note the main positive and negative battery wires etc could be corroded internally or rotted etc and probably need to be changed just due to the vehicles age.

Check your battery and alternator. Check also alternator belt. Hope this helps!

its probably your timing belt broke

open the valve cover and open the timing cover on the right and see if the belt is broken

good luck
