Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. The first thing to check is the battery voltage , a weak battery or a battery on the verge of going bad will have less cold cranking amps

I'd take a multimeter and set it to dc volts and see how much the battery reads

If it's 12.6 or better then I'd remove the spark plugs and see if it can turn the engine over
