Hi there, thanks for writing in.

From the symptoms you described, it sounds like your battery or battery cables are bad. You can try jump starting, but a bad battery may not allow a jump start if it is internally shorting. You should also have the battery cables and connections tested to make sure they are in good working order. I recommend having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, perform a full battery and charging system test and diagnose the no start issue for you.
