How old is the battery? A normal car battery life-span is anywhere form 4 to 6 years, maybe a bit more. It may have enough power for lights, but cranking the engine is a completely different thing, the CCA's, Cranking amps. Or look for corrosion on cable terminals, if there is a green/blue "mold" on the cable ends they are not making a good contact to battery. (It's not mold, but looks like it)
