Tried it afew times still nothing made afew phone calls trying to get someone to come help me tried again and it started took it home opened the hood noticed that the battery terminals and ends were corroded abit so cleaned them up and it was starting fine drove it for around a week after that with no problems now having the same problem but no matter what I can't get it to start been trying off and on for afew days can't afford to take it to a shop till atleast the 1st and we really need it to take her to drs apointment.

If it's not turning over , test battery or jump start .Even though you cleaned the corrosion off battery terminals there could be corrosion inside the cable / terminals .
