1996 BMW 328is Question: BMW 328is coupe will not start

 

Question

I tried to start my 1996 328is. It will not turn over. Their is no noise at all, no lights, seats, doorlocks, etc...I haven't driven the car in 3 weeks but it has been in a coverered garage.
I didn't leave any lights on and the battery and alternator are only 2 years old.
Obviously my battery is completely dead but does that mean my alternator is too? What could have caused the battery to die? Or is it something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Really need to get a new Battery in there and then inspect your Charging System and then Check for any parasitic drains. DON'T JUMP START this car, it ruin some of the computers!!!
