Hello, just so I understand the battery died and now you can't get the vehicle to run? is this correct?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
but let it sit for awhile n it started
Expert:  James replied 4 months ago.

If it sat for a while and started you have a battery cable issue. Heat will cause resistance in battery cables and this causes failure. To test you perform a voltage drop test on the battery cables if you have a multi meter. If you don't Replacing the battery cables isn't to expensive and is a good thing to do.
