Check the charge on the battery and see if it's got 12-13 volt. When turning the ignition check how much the voltage drops. It's most likely that your battery is gone and you need a new one. A dead battery won't even start the engine of a jump start as it has too much resistance. On idle the battery voltage should be reading 13-14 volt.
