car won't start

Hey guys having an issue with the GTA, used it Thursday totally fine, then Friday nothing.
Car won't turn over don't even think the fuel pump is engaging anyhow I've measured the volts on the battery and got just over 10V, checked all the terminal connections and the two fuse boxes in the engine bay and can't find nothing untoward with any of the fuses, also the earth was checked and was fine. So does anyone have any ideas?
Radio does not work
Windows does not work
Lights work as does centol locking
No error messages

Going to.double check all the fuses now
Thanks in advance

Batteries don't go as low as 10V without reason, so you got either dead battery, dead alternator, or current leak. If you're still on the original battery I'd wager that's the failing item, which would be the best of the alternatives as it's easy+cheap to fix.

You haven't noticed cranking being slower/longer than usual lately? My battery went the other week but showed signs long before actually giving up.

After stripping the engine down a few months ago had to recharge the battery then. The battery is still original as far as I'm aware so that needs replacing and I've got an alternator ready to go on when I put all the front suspension on in the next week or so but maybe brought forward now lol
