Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the vehicle is electrically dead then odds are the battery is dead, but it may be a cable or connection issue, power distribution, or possibly blown fuses.

Due to a number of factors a jump start isn't always reliable. Swapping in a known good battery or having this battery load tested may be necessary to determine the battery's true state.

Do the headlamps work?
