Welcome to just I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.

If the batteries completely dead and has a short in it ,Then replace the battery first because it's very difficult to jumpstart a completely faulty battery , Check the battery cable connections both at the battery and where they attach to the engine ,Using a test light checked to see if you have power at the fuses in the under hood fuse box , Three possible that we just have a faulty battery cable or one of the battery cable ends are defective
