If a car won't start or crank over, turn on the head lights see if they are bright. If they are not bright it pretty much confirms you have a bad battery, seeing as it starts when you "jump" it off another car. Battery voltage fully charged should be 12.6 volts at rest (engine not running). Turn on the ignition key see if the battery light comes on (if it doesn't that needs to be investigated!), once the engine starts and runs battery voltage should reach 14.6 volts or so if the alternator is operating properly. A battery normally last 3 to 4 years sometimes 6 or 7 years but thats a streach. When was your battery last replaced?
