Hello and Welcome -
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help ... Sorry to see you have had a wait.
What you have there more than likely is a flat battery - this will happen if the key was left in - even if it wasn't turned / switched on because the modules on the car cannot "go to sleep" with the key in..
So a recharge of the battery would be the first thing to try or fit a new one if needed - that should be all thats needed to cure your issue there.. Tip for the future though is as above - not to leave the key in as it will deaden the battery.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
~~~~ Meantime - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .
.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out.
-- Best Rgds, MIKE.
