AnswerSounds like the starter or battery. First try to jump start vehicle. the to test starter if you can locate it under hood , you can take a RUBBER hammer or mallot and hit lightly a few times and try starting vehichle. If it starts then you need to replace starter. DO NOT attempt this procedure if you are not mechanically inclined or knowledgable. you could damage something else.
