If lights and radio worked, LOW load off the battery is OK, but trying to start (400Amp draw) isn't. My bet is that your Battery connectors are loose. Dump a COKE slowly on eaxh to rremove all the Green crystalline stuff (do it slowwwwww) then remove (Negative (-) side first) and clean up the insides with a piece of sandpaper. Put them back on (Positive (+) first) and tighten good (these are typically LEAD, so easy to ruin)

Try this if the battery is not a sealed type open the caps and check the fluid level to make sure that none of the cells are low or dry, then if that is not the problem remove the battery and take it to your local parts store they can do a load test on it. A battery can show full charge and still not have enough cold cranking amps to start the car. I hope this helps you, good luck!!

Check your ground wire for battery where it connects to your frame.
Also check/clean the connections where the positive wire goes to the starter solenoid. Any connection you run into from the battery, clean them off with a wire brush or sandpaper.
Starter Solenoid can also be failing/dead, these can be tested for free at most auto part stores if you remove them from the vehicle.
