".S4 won't start, but the battery is fine, the key turns in the
ignition, and I push-started it to get it home and that all went fine. 
There is no noise at all from the starter, no click from the solenoid,

nothing.  ."



IME this sounds like the guaranteed to fail eventually ignition switch,
unbeknownst to you, remained in the start position, thus causing the
starter to fail.  

Solution is a new ignition switch ($35+/-) new /rebuilt starter ($135??)
and a couple hours repair time, okay maybe three first time thru.

There is a nice write up or two or three somewhere on this.. but I
forget where.  Search again or I'm sure some smart soul can post a link.
