Possibly the alternator not operating properly and battery got ran down trying to keep all electronics going. I would clean and tighten all battery connection and charge the battery. When it starts test the alternator. If its not putting out around 14.5 volts then its faulty and needs to be replaced.


change the alternator.charge the battery first
