What is the voltage on the battery? If a cell shorted in the battery, sometimes you can't even jump start them.

Check the voltage first before you spend any money or have them test it at the parts store.

Also check that all battery connections are clean and tight.

Sure sounds like bad battery or loose/dirty battery connections.

sounds like the 40 amp maxi fuse in the fuse block check your owners manual and if you have a remote start or bought your car used they may have a bank gps with shut off installed
