First check all of your connections. Especially the alternator. If all are good,sounds like your battery is shot. I would get a new battery and the battery tie down from a salvage yard. Once you have a new battery and the car is running, take a volt meter and test the hot side of your alternator. If putting out less than 13.8- 14.0 volts, I would replace that as well.
