Question about Cars & Trucks
Check battery voltage while under load, with head lamps on for example and note voltage and how quickly it drops, if it drops fairly quickly I'd say battery is faulty, also check voltage with engine running to make sure alternator is charging, should be 13 to 14.5 volts with motor running

Hello and Welcome to FixYa.com
Check all leads from battery. Take a volt meter check the red lead from battery to ground do you have 12 volts?
If ok the take a small hammer tap on solenoid as someone starts the engine if it starts replace starter solenoid is bad
