Check the battery charge, maybe take it back and have it tested. Horn and lights will probably work at a a very low voltage, engine electronics and starter won't.

Check the metal ground straps, there are three and you can see them from above. Two on the pax side, one on the driver's side. They should be clean, not broken or frayed, and connected tightly at both ends.

Check fuses also, might have blown something by jump-starting. Jump-starting could also damage the alternator if done wrong, that would cause the battery to go dead which could explain your symptoms.

You got to check the voltage in the alternator if it's not the same as the battery your alt is dead. Another way is if you get it running after you jump it turn every thing on ac, lights,radio, step on the brakes if the lifts go dim your alternator is dead all thud things work off the alternator it hardly ever is a new battery even if the wattage is low on it out should start your car. New battery your car will running for maybe a week after that you'll be to jump it and jump it again soo it sure sounds like your alt.
