this could be a problem in the power distribution box under the bonnet like a corroded cable or the vibration has broken it ,disconnect the battery and put it on charge overnight and see what happens in case the battery is just flat ,if still nothing after charging try a jump start in case it is the batery died as they can go all of a sudden .
It may not be the starter. The battery could have a weak or dead cell in it and not holding a charge.
The alternator could be bad and charging the battery.
If you have a volt meter, or can get one, with the car running, put the leads from the meter to the battery terminals, red positive, black ground.
Put the meter switch to 12 volts. If the meter reads 14 to 15 volts, the alternator is ok, below that it isn't charging. If it does read 14 to 15 volts, replace the battery.
By the way, the starter is ok, or it wouldn't have started with a jump.
It's more a battery/alternator issue. Clean the battery terminals first and see if that makes a difference.
These lights will come on if your alternator isn't charging fully. With a multi meter test your voltage at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be above 14 volts. If it is below 14 you will need to replace the alternator.
Did you remove the battery terminals and clean the battery posts and the terminals interiors with a special cleaning wire brush (from an auto parts house)? At this point, you may need to recharge the battery overnight at 4 to 6 amps. Buy a tube of anti-corrosion grease and smear over the battery posts and inside the terminals. Make sure you wash your hands after working on the battery, or you may wind up with strange holes in your clothes. As a test of your charging system, measure the voltage across the battery terminals while the engine is running (high idle)--you should measure about 13.5 to 14.5 volts. With engine off, it will measure 12.6 volts. If the running voltage is 12.6 or less, the alternator circuit is in trouble and not charging.
