Sounds like a severely bad battery - how old is it?

Is there a car alarm/immobilizer in the mix?

Do the headlights come on?

A few things to check.

1) BOTH ends of BOTH battery cables.

2) Battery itself. I mean, if things never ever failed, we wouldn't have warranties.

3) ALL ground connections.

4) If nothing else, peal back the insulation on the battery cables a bit; if the terminals are all good and tight, I'll bet you've got "green death" inside at least one of them.

Is it possible that the ignition switch under the dash on the steering colume has gone bad?

Just swapped batteries out and it starts never seen one go so bad instantly that even when your jumped to an f250 you have no power at all coming in

I've seen where an internal dead short will do that...dangerous to charge/jump, as the next step can be battery go boom ;)

Glad you got it sorted, and thanks for the update.
