Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. It sounds like a voltage issue. If the battery is low enough it can power these other systems, but not allow the engine to crank. This may simply be because of a bad battery, or the alternator might be failing also. I would have both of these load tested first to see if they are failing.
