Sounds more like the battery has failed or your battery cables are corroded or need cleaning and tightening, But I would say the battery is the first step because if it isn't fully charged you can't troubleshoot anything else until thats determined, AAA tow service has a battery service in some states or Any Napa, Sears Interstate batteries are great replacements. Sears auto centers will install while you wait or you can locate a shop near you for repair here
