Hello, my name is***** sounds like you have a bad battery. When the battery fails this occurs. I would start by having the battery load tested and then replace it as needed. If the battery is fine then it may be a bad negative cable with loose or corroded connections. I have also seen the ignition switch cause this, but that is not as common. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more help.
