sounds like a grounding problem to me, find an electrical diagnostic and follow it with a multimeter to make sure, otherwise you might have to replace the entire harness

Battery size is measure in 2 ways. The actual physical dimensions of the battery and the size in Cold Cranking Amps (CCA).

Had trouble starting car put key in turned twice but nothing lights lit up?

Check the battery. Turn headlights on - they will come on with or without the key if it has power from the battery. If lights do not come on, the battery is dead (try jump-starting) or there is a bad connection (loose cable), or a short in the electrical system. If headlights come on, but dashboard lights do not light up - check the ignition (cylinder / switch)
