If it's the battery be very sure that you have removed the key from the ignition. This will prevent the anti theft system from activating. Been there. Done that.

Be sure that you do the above when you replace the battery or jump start it. I just wanted to be clear.

More than likely the battery has gone bad.


It could also be a bad starter motor
