Unfortunately, last morning, my car was not starting or taking a jump. Rest the headlights, horns, and electric components are functional. It seems like the battery has no issues at all. Could anybody help?

just because those items are functional does not mean the battery is good. It takes a lot more to start the car than what those need.

I would check the starter and fuses. Take the battery to get tested again. Go from there. It could be many things.

Are the headlights bright or dim? When you try to start with the headlights ON - do they go dark or stay the same? There are a lot of computer controls that will stop the car from cranking but I always start with checking the battery and connections first. Look up the "purple wire trick" which I have posted about to eliminate some of the possible computer control problems. Good Luck
