Use a multi-meter and check the voltage of the battery. Should be 12+ volts. If battery appears good, make sure all connections clean and good. It's possible the battery has 12 volts but not the amperage to start the car. When batteries fail, it's usually in the winter as cold affects them. A place like Autozone can check the cold cranking amps present in the battery.
