Sounds like your battery is dead, have the battery checked out, may need a new battery. The charging system would need to be checked also, alternator, to see if it is charging.

Okay got new battery started right up but cut off like it's not getting gas. Shutting off after 30 seconds.

Had my mechanic over today she started right up no problem mech. Said computer probably didn't recognize there was a new battery right away. But she's fine now thank you for responding promptly
