In rare instances, if a battery has what we refer to as an "internal dead short", the battery condition may not allow even a jump start to get the vehicle started.

If this does not resolve the issue, have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the no start condition and suggest any needed repairs.
