First thing I'd do is check the fuses. All of them including any in the engine compartment. It's highly unlikely you killed the battery from listening to the stereo for only 10 minutes. The other thing that comes to mind is if you have a security system could you have somehow "tripped" it by accident? This might disable the starter. HTH. -Jim

Security system would let it turn over just wont let it start. As far as the battery goes is it old? It may need replaced or may have some corrosion on the cables maybe?

tried dif battery same result . checked all relays and 50 amp fuse all ok. key was in the on position... transponder in key (only have one) ? ignition switch or cylinder maybe ?
