    Check battery cables very closely, remove clean and retighten.... If no luck, try a jump start and have battery/alternator tested.... CAUTION: IF the alternator isn't charging the battery,, engine may stall at any time!!!!!!!... Any funny lights on in dash?.... Any indication battery is not charging?
