The symptoms you describe are usually a weak battery. Try jump starting the car or testing the battery. IT should read 12.5V. Anything lower than 12V, it's time to replace. If the car starts from a jump, drive over to an auto parts store for a new battery.
1. Ck.cables at battery. If it's loose, loosen connector( soft lead donut inside), reposition cable and retighten. Every year vibrates loose. Use 8mm wrench to mildly tighten. If top post ,many clamps (overspray) had paint inside, scrape out with knife and reconnect. Safety : Glasses, vinyl gloves and gallon of water for face if needed. Otherwise call friend with tools to remove battery hold down bolt (12'' extension,13mm socket and 3/8'' rachet) . Take to auto parts store for test. Hope this helps. Always have plyers handy.
