Called AAA for a jump start and nothing. No "rrrr" or anything. Lights, etc were not left on. Starter seemed to be okay before. The car ran fine. I parked it and went to start it and nothing. Battery tests fine for cold crank, etc. Now I have to have it towed! Any ideas why it wont start?

    could be your battery is just shorted internally and will not take a jump

    Thank you for the response. I was told it was a fuse that blew the starter. I am not sure. I used to dabble in working on cars, but everything is too different now. Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks to you too! I see you both agree. I am told to replace the starter. It will run into more money than I thought. I did manage to replace the battery - too hard! I posted another question. I appreciate your response.
