You can check all your connections from the battery to the starter to make sure they're good and make sure the battery has a good charge in it. But if the engine just up and died instantly, it sounds as if something else might have happened. That "ping" noise you heard, did it sound like something breaking, or more similar to the engine shutting off? Have you had any issues prior to this happening, like a check engine light on, or any repairs or work done before this happening?
