2000 lincoln ls: v6..horn..dome light..starter, or alternator

This answer was rated:

my 2000 lincoln ls v6 will not start, sounds like a low battery, it will drag, then all it does is click, then nothing. When i pull my key out of the ignition, the horn sounds very faintly and the dome light blinks like the anti theft system was turned on but it wasnt. Whats going on, is it a battery, starter, or alternator?
Ok defiantely sounds like a faulty battery the cells are most likely bad you need to have a battery test done along with a charging system test to be sure the alternator is working properly but sounds like the battery is just bad

Yes any auto parts store can do the charging system test make sure its done with the car running ,also make sure all the battery terminals are tight and not corroded and do not pull off the battery
