Have the battery load tested. Sounds like it's dead. HTH. -Jim

Yes that was the problem, they did test the battery and it was fine. They said it just needed to run for awhile.

I just went to check it and it's still not starting, i also noticed that the light at the top of my car isnt coming on and it has bn all morning. But my dash lights wrk, and my lights on the outside.
