Evidently the car has been sitting too long I put the key in the ignition nothing, Maybe I

you don't say how long it has been sitting, but most car batteries will go dead if you don't drive the car for long periods- with all the computers and electronics, there is some draw- try jumping it and letting it run for awhile to see if the alternator will charge the battery (if may not take a charge if it has frozen over the winter). also, get some fresh gas for the tank if it hasn't been driven for awhile. I hope this helps.
