Yesterday I replaced the blow fuse for the cigarette lighter so I can use my phone charger in the car for a trip.

Hello,

Ok, how old is the car battery? Did you leave the phone charger plugged in?

If battery is 3 years or older and you left the charger plugged in it is most likely the battery is dead. Try jump starting it if starts would take to auto parts store and ask them to charge your battery it may be time to replace it, would also check battery connections for looseness and corrosion.

I didn't leave anything on. Thought maybe there was some kind of a reset I had to do. I will try jumping it when my brother gets home. Hope that's all it is. Thank you

There is no reset. Have the battery tested as previously advised.

Tried to jump the car and got a little bit of power. Went a head and took the battery to a shop. The guy pulled off the caps and there was ice in the cells. He's gonna let it thaw and give it a good charge. Thanks for everyone's help. ; )

Don't even waste your time. Once a battery freezes, it is junk.
