Best Answer

-- battery

-- battery cable

-- connection between battery cable and battery

A fault in any of these would still supply the small current used by the

lights and radio, but not the huge battery current required for starting.

Your battery is dead and you should probably take it to the repair shop and have them put it in for you. Couldn't it be the starter motor? The lights and radio come on, so there must be some juice and the battery.

What is wrong with the car when it won't turn on but all the lights inside the car and the radio come on but the head lights won't?

Maybe you have a problem with your car's battery. If your battery's dead, your interior lights and radio wont turn on. So if you wait for a while and your radio wont turn on, then probably the problem is with the battery. If it is, than you should check the your battery fluid. If its not the battery, maybe there is something wrong with your starter motor.

Will your lights headlights come on? Will anything work? Had something like that happen to me years ago. I had no lights and nothing worked. Turned out it was an alternator. There could be something else that would be wrong but, it would be something to check out.
