Hello,
Would you happen to have a volt meter to do a quick easy test?
Have you tried to jump start it?

Take your volt meter and set it to DC volts on the 0-20 scale and see how many volts are at the battery cable down on the starter and let me know

Hi,
Have you checked the voltage at the cable on the starter yet?
