Battery sounds dead or loose dirty connections. Try a jump start after cleaning battery posts and grounds. If car starts, drive it around for a while to charge the battery. When you get home, put a volt meter on the battery and see if you are getting 12 volts. If battery is fully charged and you are not getting 12 volts for a reading, then your battery may be losing it's charge due to a bad cell or it may be low on water. (If not a sealed battery) If battery is new, then you may have left something on, or you may have a parasitic draw. Since you car is fairly new, I would say that it's not the starter. If battery is new and or fully charged, and it still clicks, then I would have to say it may be a starter issue. Post back with results.

Changed the battery works fine, thankfully. I think I'm gonna invest in a car charger for near future start up battery issues.

I always invest in the charger with the 50 amp engine start option. Acts as a jump but without needing another vehicle. Very handy.

Life of car battery is it 3-4 years? And if I had a charger how long more of use I could've continue with the battery?

Your battery is always being charged when it's in the car. A battery charger will not prolong the life of your battery. It only serves as a secondary means of charging the battery when the battery has died and the car is not able to start and recharge the battery. All batteries degrade over time. Some faster than others. Most will last you at least 5 years before they begin to give you trouble.

Check alternator and battery but if battery is good most likely it's alternator output
