Your welcome

It is very possible the battery has died due to a weak battery that failed sooner then it should have or due to a battery drain issue with one or more electronics sticking on in your model causing a battery drain issue.If the jump start allows starting and operation then I would have the battery tested as well as the battery drain to see if there is a drain on the battery from one or more electronics in your model at fault needing replaced.
