I posted this to roadfly e30 first without luck. Anyone care to speculate ro point me in the right direction?

My GF's car has been sitting since March 1 (she is away on contract) outside.

Went to go start it and nothing. Thinking the battery was bad (it was) I recharged and wouldn't even turn over. No power anywhere.

Tried boosting and same symptoms , no power anywhere.

Any ideas? HELP!

Might be that your battery is so far gone you can't even jump it. I've had this happen to cars that have sat for a while with an older battery. If the cells go bad you get no continuity through the battery and it won't even let you jump start the car. Try actually replacing the battery, I'll bet it clears up your problem.

from being jumped. And be careful jumping--lotsa sensitive electronics can be damaged if you're not careful. Get a new battery.

Like Mike said, on cars with ECM's will likely not appreciate it! Always charge the battery when disconnected. In this case, buy a new one and start from there. If the car cranks over after that, but still doesm

t start, check the fuel oumo relay, a common problem with the e30.
