    So my MacBook wont turn on, no sounds, nothing. But when I push the power button the sleep light blinks simultaneously. It blinks just once any time I press it.

    Also the green indicator lights on the side show my battery it full.

    I had no sudden shut down I just closed the lid and a few hours later it wouldn't turn on. I tried to do the ctrl command option reset to no avail

    I should also mention my fan has been broken for a while but I am meticulous about giving it ventilation and checking that it doesn't get too warm. Could this still have potentially corroded something?

    Any ideas what part is dead? Please help with any suggestions you've got, I am very poor right now and am praying I won't have to give apple my right leg to get this fixed

    What year, what size, what version of OS X? Impossible to diagnose anything without even knowing what we're talking about here.

    Seeing as how you have a battery indicator, it's not a retina model. So that means it could easily be bad ram or loose ram in a slot. I've seen that happen before.

    But you said that your fan is broken? If so, there is no way it will run with a broken fan. It will just overheat before it even gets going. Was it broken as in not moving or just making lots of noise? My bet is on the fan, and hopefully it didn't cause more damage with it being broken and still being used. Fans are super cheap (like $10 on eBay/Amazon cheap) and user replaceable if you've got some screwdrivers.
