Sounds like you might have a short to ground or the battery shorted on you. You can open the hood and try wiggle the battery cables, maybe they are bad or lost a connection due to corrosion. If that doesn't work, call roadside assistance and have it towed to your nearest garage for diagnosis and repair.
