Default Battery or starter

Battery or starter
Recently I left the glove compartment open on my bf car. i noticed over 12 hrs later when I went to get in car for work. The car will not start. He feels its the starter and not the battery. We haven't had any issues with the car having trouble starting. He wants to get it towed and I believe that's insane. How do I know what the problem is and am I crazy to think its the battery? The lights and radio do come on and when try turning key it does nothing. Please help save money.

I agree it sounds like a battery problem. If the car started ok before the glovebox door was left open charging the battery may be all it needs. At most a new battery. Try starting it with jumper cables.

MCG nailed it. Most likely the battery, I don't see how your BF thinks Starter bad from leaving glove box open..
