HELP!!!! 2006 325i wont start..

Hello everyone,

Last week, after driving for a couple hours in the rain I stopped at gas station, stopped the engine but left the key in (radio and wipers on), when I get back in the car, a couple of minutes after, the car just wouldnt start. I thought it could be the battery even though windows, radio, and everything worked, so tried to jump start it but Nothing.. When I push the start button it just wont do anything, not a clicking sound or a flicker.. Nothing. Towed to a shop back in Houston but the guy has no experience whatsoever on BMWS.. He doesn't even know if there's a relay for the starter or ignition switch and neither do I..

Can somebody give me a clue of what may have caused this problem? I don't want to have to take it to the dealer bc I know they will try to rape me.. and to be honest I cant afford it right now.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time and consideration!!

Did the guy at the shop check all the fuses, there are a few fuses that if blown will prevent the car from starting!

He checked the fuse box that's in the glove compartment.. Do you know if there's one under the hood or somewhere else?
