Ok thank you. Really appreciate your honesty. So should I just get the tow?
Expert:  Amedee replied 4 months ago.

I dont think it is necessary. It sounds to me like you just have low battery voltage. A jump should do the trick.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I tried to jump it. It doesn't turn over
Expert:  Amedee replied 4 months ago.

Chances are because you did not have a good connection. WHat is the battery voltage at?

Expert:  Amedee replied 4 months ago.

When was the last time the battery was replaced? I bet you just have a bad battery, battery low on a charge or a bad connection at or after the battery.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I got it. It was a bad connection. I must have had an internal light on that drained it. Thank you so much for your assistance
