Try checking and cleaning the battery terminals, a marginal connection will allow low current draw devices to work.....but you need a good connection to turn the starter. Also check the other ends of the cables, make sure they are tight and check other engine grounds.

thanks will try that But in the mean time we discovered that if you put the car in N it turns over but will not start just keeps cranking over
