Ran out of gas & now car wont start?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So pretty much I ran out of gas, so walked over to a gas station, filled my can & then my car. Nothing. & now when I try starting it the car makes a clicking noise. Before it would only crank over & the lights & accessories worked. I just want to find out what the issue or issues could be...

Sounds like you ran the battery down - get it jumped and try again

After I jump it then what? When the battery was fine my car wouldn't start. It would crank but not start. Never had this issue before & this is the second time I've ran out of gas ever & it didn't happen the first time. I'm just lost lol.
