Hey so I went to move my truck today because I got a warning to be towed but it wouldn't start. Its a 86 ranger 2.0 carbed. the battery is completely dead so I tried jump starting it but the solenoid just makes a loud clicking/almost grinding sound. I tried jumping the terminals but nothing would happen. I also tried to push start it but it wouldn't even try to start. Maybe cause there is zero juice at the battery? Is this a starter issue or whats going on? The truck has been sitting for a few months cause my license is suspended but everything worked perfect before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a dead battery. It should have started with a jump though, are the cables you used in good shape?
