Check the battery voltage, it should be 13.5 V, kick the headlights on for a minute and see if this "load test" will be sufficient to crank it over.

...else throw a charger on it for eight to ten hours, I'll be expecting a full report, in the morning!

Check the battery in your remote control while you have your meter out.

you know modern car batteries will stop taking a charge ten percent per year....so check the "knock-off" labels on the top of your battery to see how old that it is...buy a new battery~
