You have drained the battery below its ability to operate the starter, charge your battery back up, should solve the issue, jump starting a totally dead battery does not work until there is a sufficient surface charge on the battery of at least 10 volts. Please rate my service, I will continue to answer your questions until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
