Hi, my name is***** definitely sounds like a bad battery. I would try a jump start or have your battery charged and tested. The battery is located under the hood on the passenger side below the cabin air filter duct. You just need to unclip the duct and move it out of the way to access the battery. Let me know how you make out.
