Battery is discharged... needs a charge. Have the battery load tested at auto parts store. If its 60 months old GAME OVER replacement time!

Thanks! I am hoping its just the battery.

Today I checked before I did anything and the dashboard gauges, A/C, and dome light were working. I put in a new battery and she started right up!
