Thanks for all the responses.
My son's friend's dad tried to jump start it and couldn't. called the towing company and he couldn't start it and he said it is the starter.
It was towed to the mechanic. The towing guy called me afterwards and said he got it to start but feels the starter still needs to be changed

Mon the mechanic called me and said the car starts without difficulty. he tried multiple times during the course of the day and it always started.
he said he could not say what the cause is since he can't reproduce it.

this evening , after work, drove it home.

keeping my fingers crossed.

Plan to clean the battery terminals , may be even change it.

told my son to debulk his key chain.

will update

thanks again

will get the radiator fixed- nothing is green
