Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the keyless entry does not work and you're unable to start the engine a dead battery is a very likely cause for the issue.
Have you checked to make sure the battery connections are clean and tight?

Have you tried a jump start, swapping in a known good battery or having this battery load tested?

Noone actually came to the car when you called roadside assistance?
