Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could be going on and some electrical testing may be required to determine what is wrong. If the vehicle is electrically dead though then it's most likely a battery or cable/connection issue.

The first thing that should be done is check the battery cables and connections. If ok then the next thing I would recommend is to try a jump start (not always reliable), swapping in a known good battery or having the battery load tested. Most big chain parts stores will load test batteries for free.

If the battery and connections are ok then the next step would be to check all fuses. If ok then some electrical testing will be required from there.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
