In the Auto section of Search the List, Auto Repair would be your category - AL does not have a category for just mobile mechanics. You could google for mobile mechanics in your area and then cross-check those names on AL for ratings and reviews.

Likely a bad connection at the battery or starter (especially if any lights or radio work) - or a dead/dying battery. Or possibly, if your car does not turn lights off automatically or a door or glovebox or such was left ajar so a cargo/entry light was left on, the battery ran down overnight. Again, if your car is jumped to get it running, if that was the cause then as long as it shows it is charging (depending on whether you have electrical system gage or just idiot light) could be fine.

You might see if you have a friend or neighbor who knows how to jump a car, to see if they can start it using their car battery and jumper cables - then see if your car will keep running and is charging or not - maybe at least enough to be able to drive to a repair shop to get an electrical system and battery test.

Also - if you have a car warranty or AAA membership - you might be eligible for free towing or jump by a tow company.
