Wtf Help!

ok so my gf drove my car last night to work.. she gets home and this morning i went to start the car, and the battery is dead.. i asked her if she left any lights on in the car or headlights etc. she said no. so i just tried jumping the car, nothing. i looked to see if she turned my headlights on and left them on and she left the parking lights on. why? idk. AND my speedo is sitting on 24mph sitting in the driveway and dead..?? WTF?? any suggestions?

Lol I am real selective bout those things. I would onlylet my gf drive my car if I was in it. These are perfect examples of why lol. My gf is also forgetful and not as confident a driver as me. Good luck with that I hope you get it working! Let us know what it is when you fix it.

well i was at work and my room mate was also working.. usually i DONT let her drive it alone for the same reason. the one thing i told her before she left was BE CAREFUL ITS MY BABY. then i said, DONT TOUCH ANYTHING THAT YOU DONT NEED. and she said ok. so yeah. im getting ready to take my battery to advance for a charge. hopefully THAT works. if not, fml.

yea you have to leave it charge for a while. My mom drove my car when I first got it and she didnt know about the auto headlights and she turned them on Manually and forgot to turn them back to auto. the car was dead and had to let it charge for a hour or so.
