car is dead...

Was going to take the car out for a night on the town but when I went out and tried to start it.... nothing except a click. Headlights turn on, radio works fine, but the car will not turn over. Won't even try to engage the starter.

You can hear the fuel pump or something in the rear of the car whine a little and then shut off once the car goes from "on" to "off" on the ignition.


Is it the CDI? Anything else that I can check?

Just had the car out Thursday for a good 4 to 5 trips... shut down and start up each time with NO troubles at all.

I have not tried jumping it as I need to go to dinner still, but have all day tomorrow to figure this out.
