Does it make any sound(s)? Tick tick tick maybe? = Battery
Super sluggish, barely turns over and then stops? = Battery

Being you already have the battery disconnected take it to a parts store and have it tested or if you have a battery charger, charge it.

Will need a lot more information if the battery is ruled good.

Depending on the answers to my question you may have a bad ignition switch. It's a start (no pun intended)

A bad or dying battery that won't turn the engine over can still light up your dash, run the radio.

But I also tried jumping it and it didn't work. I'll probably still take it to AutoZone for a charge

Was kind of hoping we'd have some other folks jump in...


I don't know that car well so it's very possible there is something simple that can be checked or there is a known problem other might know about.


Are you able to take the ignition switch out and jump it? See if that turns it over? If the battery is good then it could possibly be the Start solenoid is bad or the starter itself.

When you turn the key on and you hear the ticks that's a battery that doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine.
