MODELS CAR WON'T CRANK

1998 Mitsubishi Other

Electrical problem
1998 Other Mitsubishi Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115, 00 miles

My stepdaughter was given a 1998 Mitsubishi Eagle by her father. She has had problems starting the vehicle. The battery was put in in 2010. She was told that she needs to hold down the theft alarm button (which is attached to a wire beneath the driver's side dash) while pressing the brake, and turn the ignition. It worked 2 or 3 times. However, she went to the grocery store and the car stopped on her, and no one can get it cranked. She was also told to put it in neutral and try to crank it. It doesn't quite turn over and it then only starts clicking. Have you ever heard of this problem, and what can we do? We want her to be safe. She just started college.
