Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the vehicle is electrically dead then the battery is by far the most likely cause. Cable or connection issues are also possible but not as likely.

If the battery connections are clean and tight then the next thing I would recommend is either trying a jump start (not always reliable), swapping in a known good battery, or having this battery load tested.
