It may be that the battery has a dead cell, so you should fully charge the battery and have it tested at any auto parts store. If the battery is good then Start by checking all the accessory lights. Trunk, under hood, glove box, curtorsey, dome, all lights. If none of them are on then suspect a stuck relay. Power windows, seat, locks, etc.

It means the battery has been drained of all it's power. Simply recharge the battery with a battery charger and it will be fine. You do not have to replace the battery, although draining the battery fully does harm the battery. Charge the battery fully and it will function as it should.

Possible causes include a weak battery, battery connections, and a failed starter.

It could be, a dead battery, dirty or loose battery connections, a bad starter, the engine is seized.

Have someone test your battery with a load tester.

Starter that is going bad, out of time, or weak battery.
