Does the car turn over/try to start ?

Do the lights on the dash come on when you try to start it ?

Make sure everything is off when you try to start it.
Radio, air, defrost, lights, etc..

Maybe something shorted out ..?..

It sounds like

Sounds like a dead battery or poor connections. The battery connector problem (covered by the recall but not clearly noted on it) will do this. The bottom line is she is looking for too much current and a poor connection causes it.

When the alternator fails it also does something similar to this.

Good luck.
