Sounds like a dead battery or a bad battery cable connection. Make sure the battery cable connections are clean and tight at both ends. Have the battery load tested at your local auto parts store. Put Vaseline on the battery cable connections at the battery to prevent corrosion in the future. Hope that helps! Jim
