Left it overnight at a friends and when I returned it wouldn't

Customer Question

Left it overnight at a friends and when I returned it wouldn't start. Just shows system start fault. At first I figured dead battery but after trying to boost it realized that wasn't it. After trying a few times the alarm system started going off honking the horn and flashing the four ways. I assume it might be due to someone trying to punch the wrong password ***** the keypad too many times and now it's locked itself down?
JA: There are so many things that can cause battery issues. Some simple, some complicated. The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Will the car start?
Customer: It's a 2013 ford f150
JA: Got it. The mechanic will have thoughts on how you two can troubleshoot and diagnose this issue. How old is the battery?
Customer: Original battery
JA: Anything else I can tell the Ford Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
