Start with the basics i.e. check your battery for at least 12.6 volts with the key out of the ignition and the doors closed. If it is dead then you may have a worn out battery or a problem with your charging system.

Here is a link to an article that we at RepairPal put together to help folks with the inspection ( or your shop ) of these types of issues.
