Stuck Starter Relay...
Joe' s correct, you have a stuck starter relay. Your '99 probably didn't get the newer style relay installed when the refit program was available.
Here's what you have to do:
1. Disconnect battery leads and fully charge your battery
2. Attach the Positive lead - FIRST
3. Attach the Negative lead
4. When the starter motor STARTS to spin, press and hold in the STARTER BUTTON. That should free up the relay.
You should speak with your dealer about a new relay, but the real problem is allowing the battery voltage to get too low.
There are numerous posts on this in the HOW under Troubleshooting/Electrical
