Hello and Welcome.
MY name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise.
Your problems seem to be down to either a faulty - or flat / very weak car battery.
FULLY charge the battery... and then re try to start the car.
Depending on the TYPE of battery charger you have - you may need to charge the battery for several hours before you re try it.. OR - fit a KNOWN GOOD / fully charged battery -and re try it.
From what you describe, it sounds like this is your problem.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- 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
