Thanks for posting
It sounds like it has an old alarm system that has activated when the battery went dead
Try doing this:
take the key out of the ignition
disconnect the car battery negative cable
put the key in and turn it to on
connect the jumper battery to the positive battery terminal
connect the negative cable from the jumper directly to the negative cable that you took off
If the alarm stays off it should start
let me know what happens
Is there a red LED light on or just below the dash, is there a toggle switch on the left kick panel, if so turn it to off.
Is there a push button on the back of the LED?
Is the light flashing? Can you push the light in like a push button?
Look under the dash on the left and see if there are a couple of fuses inline that were added for the alarm and pull these out.
A couple of fuses like what's in the fuse box, they may be taped up.
Yes, just reply here again.
Would you like to continue this after the car gets to your location, I can give instructions how to remove the alarm system relay and related wiring that keeps the car from starting, it's the only solution I can see at this time.
Great, just let me know when you can continue.
Ok, the first hing is to remove the bottom cover on the steering column, there should be an add on relay about 1 inch square, with some wires attached, this the relay that keeps it from starting, it's then a matter or removing these wores from the relay and connecting them back together matching each wire color, throw the relay out, next locate the alarm black box, it has a connector with a bunch of wires going to t, pull the connector off, there atr a couple of wires that will be tapped into existing wires with scotchlock connectors, cut these off, splice any wires together that seem to have been cut and are the same color, remove the black box and any wires associated with it, all wires that are tapped into existing wires should be cut off.
