The attendant had a set of jumpercables and tryed to jumpstart it, but nothing just slow cranking. Goto wal-mart buy a new battery get some tools from automotive to change it. Go back to gas station install battery and nothing. No cranking no clicking absolutely nothing..
That sounds ABSOLUTLY nothing like what the VATS system does when the key pellets or the reader is shot. To my knowledge, and I maybe wrong, but the VATS disables the fuel pump...not the starter.....I spent all day under OBE'* Bonne last summer chasing the VATS crap down.
Sounds like you have a junk starter.
