When you say will not turn on do you mean the vehicle will crank over but will not start or will not crank over at all ? Is the starter clicking when trying to start ?

Won't crank over and starter is not clicking I tried to jump it and did nothing let it sit charging for 15 mins nothing but when I left the cables connected to my battery there was spark

Try jumping vehicle again but this time let the cables stay on for about a minute or two this will let the vehicle that is jumping your to charge up your battery leave vehicle that is jumping your vehicle idling. Also would help to rev up vehicle that is jumping your vehicle a little bit.

Also removing and clean battery terminals before jumping.

it could be ignition switch or starter solenoid with the radio not working i don't think you are getting power. check fuses 1st then check for power to the starter
