Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire
The first thing is to see how old the battery is. Batteries are rated for a certain life in MONTHS. There is a sticker on them that is supposed to be maked when the battery is installed. Then you look and see if it is a 24 month or 36 month etc and if it is past that date then I would get another one. HOWEVER, there could be something wrong with the charging circuit on the car or some other thing that is causing a discharge. So if the battery is new or you get a new battery,You would have to check for something called "parasitic drain." And you need to see about the output from the alternator.

Couple of things that could have happened.
Did you drain the battery while you were cleaning the car. Radio on, dome lamp on...i've done that before.
Vaccuming and digging underneath the instrument panel it is possible you pulled out a connector, look around see if htere are any loose wires. Push the connectors together make sure they are locked.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
