    I would recommend take off and clean your battery post and terminals even if they dont look corroded. If you dont have a cleaner its only a few dollars at your local parts store. And tighten down your terminals good and tight. This could help your problem. You might even service your battery and pop the tops off and fill with water.

    see if the lil green l.e.d. on the battery has any glow, or worse if its yellow.
    and of course , jump start it.

    Is there a manual bypass? I think some vehicles have a button or spot where you use the key to override it.
