I don't have anyone to give jump start
Pontiac Mechanic: Gary, Pontiac Technician replied 3 years ago
see if it will start with a jump startif you can get a jump start remove the battery and have your local parts store test the battery

I'm very disappointed with this answer and will not use or recommend this service
Pontiac Mechanic: Gary, Pontiac Technician replied 3 years ago
i do not know what more you expect hereand that was not an answer i gave you.it is what needs to be checkedthe car is electrically deadthe next step i don't care who you talk to is you have to test the battery or see if it will start with a jump startthere is nothing else to check or to do first but thatthat is what has to be done other than me being there in person to try a jump start or test the batterythere is no magic thing to do or magic switch to turn
