Do you have a way to check the battery voltage?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I am not home right now.
Expert:  David Gieswein replied 1 month ago.

It is possible that your battery has gone out on you and the vehicle was running on the alternator. When you get the chance, get a meter and check. Or you can try jump starting.

Any luck on your vehicle?

Customer has made no attempt to respond therefore I am opting out

Hello, try to jump start it with another car or a jumper box, if you have roadside assistance call them to come out and give you a jump, if it starts replace the 12 volt battery under the tood.
