Dead battery. the starter draws a very large amount of amperage and your accessories do not. Have the battery tested and charged. clean the terminals and check the connections (routine maintenance)


It ur starter if ur battery has atleast at min 11.7 voltsit should crank if nt da brushes are bad in starter try hitin it with hammer afew times and if it crank then u know itz ur starter and if it doesnt start u still need starter if u hav good battery voltage
