Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

What most likely happened is that you double tapped the start button since the car is new to you. Double tapping is when you press the start button more than 1 time to shut the car down. When you do this, the car will turn off and the ignition will either turn on to ACC mode or ON which will drain the battery almost completely. So the car will be stone dead.

So what I would recommend you attempt to do is lets try jump starting the car. When you jump start the car, you want to leave the car that is running attached to your car for at least 10 mins or so to charge up your battery before you attempt to start the car. When ever you are hooking up jumper cables, you always want to connect Positive First, then negative last. Failure to connect them in that sequence could result in a voltage surge. When removing the cables from the battery, Negative First, then Positive.

Please give that a try and let me know how you make out, or if you have any more questions on this before you try, just ask.

If you attempted to jump start the car and are charging the battery now, if you did not connect the jumper cables in the pattern I told you, then you could have blown the main fusible link. The Main fusible link is off the positive battery terminal. It is hard sometimes to tell it is blown looking at it through the clear lends. But if you can't tell, then you would need to remove it to inspect it.

I am sorry this has happened. I am doing my best to help you with this issue. Here is a image of the main fusible link blown. Then removed and I am holding up to the light so you can see that it is blown.
