Try charging your battery. Just sounds like your battery went dead. Once you get it started get a volt meter and hook it up to the -and + terminals on the battery while the car is running and see how many volts it reads. if it's under 13 you might have a bad alternator, check all you connections on the battery and I reccommned soldering new battery cable ends and hook them up with new terminals. Check the simple things.
