You can jump start it, and then drive it around a little bit til it recharges, or charge it with a charger. Probably cheaper to charge it, save gas

Have your battery tested or replaced.
how ever if after doing that and the problem still occurs where your vehicle wont turn over you may have to have the acc switch checked out.

I have a 1999 Volkswagen beetle. Key was left in the ignition for 3days. Lights will come on in the inside. but will not turn over, even after trying to jump it off.

try some proper jump leads and not then cheap chinese things ,you need cables with a copper inside the diameter of your ring finger and double connectd to each side of the clip before you can even think of trying to jump a engine ,these cheap cables are only for charging one vehicle to another not passing 200 amps through

I left the key in the ACC position of the 2009 Buick Enclave for 3 hours. When I came back to the car, the rear tail lights were on, the key was stuck, everything electrical was dead and the Malfunction...

Most likely, you just have a dead battery. Once your battery reaches a critically low point, the electronics simply go nuts... lights won't turn off, etc. until it's absolutely dead. Just try putting a battery charger on the it or use a safe jump starting technique- you should be fine.

Good luck.

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?

Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

Security alarm was set off yesterday car wouldnot start afterward now battery is dead andnopower at all

This is a real common problem. You have an alarm, however if it goes off it may keep going untill your battery is dead. No big problem, you just need to either jump your battery with another car or hook up a battery charger to the battery. Easy fix.

Battery dischareing, replace battery still problem, jump and runs fine, left sit for 2 days and battery is dead

possible problems- aftermarket add on is not hooked to acc side of the power and is hooked to a all the time 12 volts(ex. radio, amp, of fog lights) other problem is your alternator is not keeping up with your power demand(hook a voltmeter across the battery when the car is started and everything that you use is on and see if it reads at least 13 volts)...hope this helps

Car won't start. Acts like the battery is dead, however I can't jump start it.

Well if you cant jump start it thats a good sign that the battery is dead so replace it and you should be fine, and another way you can try is hook the battery up to a charger overnight and if it doesnt hold its charge then you will know if its dead or not.

Car will not jump start

Check battery voltage. If volts are very low, put on charger. In many cases, you can't jump through a really dead battery... not enough voltage gets through to computer etc to make systems operate.
Battery may be used up... if it will not take a charge, replace it and check charging system before driving. PS: use a charger to charge battery. If it is very low, you candamage charging system in other vehicle. Also,,, You cleaned terminals already RIGHT???

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
