have you actually checked the battery? because the radio and lights may come on does not mean it has the power to even crank the engine.

i tried to jump start it and nothing

Expert:  joe replied 7 years ago.
ok, it is most likely that your starter is faulty or the starter relay will need to be replaced..when you don't even get a click, when you try to start it, that means the relay , connections or starter is bad. I would start with the connections from the battery to the alternator ,then to the starter, just to make sure they are nice and tight and no corrosion, if nothing still, I would then replace the relay, then starter for last result
