Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

Try first using the ignition key to unlock the system , in case this is locked.
If it is not this, then you can reset the whole system by unplugging battery cables for ten minutes.
Ensure you have your car stereo code if you decide to unplu the battery, as you will be asked for security code when you connect back the battery.

Sure they can. That is not a mandated safety feature such as air bags or seat belts. They have no legal requirement to make sure a tire repair kit is included with the vehicle. You will have to buy one yourself, ask them nicely to get you one for free, or take you chances on not having a flat.
