2006 Ford Five Hundred - Dead battery

Battery is dead, can’t don’t know why

That’s easy enough to check.
Could be:
Battery needs replacement.
Alternator has failed.
Parasitic drain.

Was your alternator light on? CEL on?

No just the light for the battery,
Everything would go out in the dash

If the battery icon is lit while the engine is running it indicates a charging system failure, possibly an alternator failure.

Alright , I will have it looked at where
I bought the car… thank you all
