Your battery is probably dead! Call AAA, they'll come out and tell you exactly what's wrong and they sell really great batteries right on the spot with a 3 year unconditional guarantee.

Lights and everything comes on its just the engine won't do anything.

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, bad starter, or bad neutral safety switch. Run the shifter through all the gears quickly a few times and see if it'll start then. If so, the neutral safety switch is sticking. HTH. -Jim
