Problem reviving a Roadster

My friend has a roadster that has not been driven for years and collecting dust. We tried to hook it up on charging nothing seems to turn on. On our charger there's 'Test', 'Reset' switch and a red light.

Any tips how we can possibly revive this Roadster? Please help!

The battery has very likely 'bricked' itself if it wasn't plugged in for several years by self-discharging beyond the point of return. There are clear warnings all over the Roadster and manuals about this possibility. 'bricked' implies that it can't be resurrected.
The good news is that if it is bricked, the replacement battery will include a free upgrade to Roadster 80.
I recommend contacting a service center.
