    Does the engine turn over when you try to start it, or does it not even do that?

    Yes. There are such things as defective batteries.

    These cars are not too happy with jump starts. Sometimes you need to switch in a known good battery from another car to test.

    If the dash gauges will got o the max and back then it's the battery.
    If they don't do that and it still doesn't turn over then usually it's the ground wire from the starter. You need to clean it up. This problem occurs mainly at the 3BKs manufactured prior to 2006, but sometimes you may see this with newer BKs and even MPSes.
