Sounds like battery. Pull it, get it tested to see what it's putting out. Also see how old it is- if it's just old and gone, easy fix. If it's a newer battery and it's toast, look into alternator, shorts, terminals, etc. lots of "it won't start" threads around, especially in the vert forum.

Check for battery condition with on-board computer without having to remove battery. Search forum for "hidden codes" or "OBC".
