Sounds like a very dead battery. Charge the battery and then load test the battery. If, after the charge, the battery fails the load test, replace it. For future reference when you're going to not be using the car for awhile disconnect the negative (-) battery cable so the battery won't run down again. HTH. -Jim

While I agree with Jim, a car with a strong battery in it should easily be able to sit for 6 months and start with no problem without disconnecting anything. I agree your battery is likely worn out. They only last about 5 years. If something had been left on in the car you wouldn't even be getting a clicking sound. Of course checking the battery connections to make sure they're tight before you do anything else is also a good idea.

Thank you all for the help; I took the battery out and had it charged overnight at batteries Plus; put it back in and it started right up! live and learn. Thanks again
