The battery should be on the drivers side of the car under the windshield washer reservoir. It requires some disassembly to get to directly. Check for a bad connection at the battery. If the battery is completely dead or defective, you might not be able to jump the car. If you can turn the headlights on and they seem bright . you more than likely don't have a voltage issue. Possible starter, neutral safety switch, or ignition switch issue.
