Have you tested the battery to see what the voltage it, it should be 12.6 volts.

Don't have tester
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.

You either need to try a jump start, or tow to a repair shop since you don't have any tools or tester.

Ok I see, I suspect you have a bad alternator that is not keeping the battery charged, but could also be a bad battery. Are the cable connections clean and tight?
