    it did seem as if it wanted to turn over the first time but now i have tried again and there is nothing. I'm now assuming it may just be the battery?

    I didnt turn the headlights on but when I open the car using the remote on the key, it does sound a little slow opening the locks, if you know what I mean!!

    It sounds like the battery is either discharged by a current drain or is toast..

    Charge it up and see. Check the date stamped on the battery.
