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

If your head lights do not turn on, that is a sign of a weak or dead battery. Did you try jump starting the car?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No. I am waiting for someone now.
Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

This is most likely just a dead battery, lets jump start it and see if that shows sign of life

Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

Also when you hook up the jumper cables, see if the head lights come on. If they do, then you know it's the battery

Let me know how you make out and if you have any more questions on this
