    Need to have charging system inspected. Possible alternator or battery issue. Suspect the alternator.

    Tried to jump start,no luck. Starter just clicks, and lights get very dim. There is 12 volts in battery.

    If the lights are dimming that much, power is being drawn but a lead may have burnt out. Check main fuse box for possible short.

    Alternator issue. Have a shop do a charge system test for diagnosis.
