check all of your battery connections. both ends. then try to jump start. You might have a parasitic draw on your battery. Also have your alternator tested and scan the computer for codes.

My 2006 Ford Taurus was doing the same thing just 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately, it turned out to need a new fuel pump. I replaced that and it starts just fine now. But, I’ve incurred another issue or 2 should I say with this darn blasted car!! Check engine has been on since I owned the car and now and now a low oil pressure light came on too and the car shut off on me while driving yesterday. I just got it back from the shop 3 days ago prior to that happening! I am hating this car but it is paid for.
