In that case, all you need to do is recharge the battery, for which you will need a recharger or a neighbor who is in a good mood and has jumper cables.

Occurrences, such as corrosion of the clamps or oxidation of the terminals, can also get in the way of a car battery working properly. But, even if that happens, simply clean them up with a little water.
