Check and see if any lights have been left on. If they have then you ran down the battery! You know it is the battery. Has the alternator light been on? If so, you should have taken it in before this!

Usually it is the battery. That is the first thing to check. If you have jumper cables, it is usually easy to get a jump and see if you can get the car started that way. If you can, then, if you did not leave your lights on, you want to go and get the problem fixed.

The next thing that it might be is the starter relay. I can manually trip a starter relay but you can't. If you can not get it started with jumper cables, you need to call someone to fix it for you. Sometimes it is a module. Sometimes I can replace a part in 2 minutes it would take you all day to find.
