My car is in good shape but every once in a while if im at a stop light it will cut off. And then sometimes i try to crank it when i leave and it will turn over but not start up. I habe to jumped off. Then its good for a while then it wont crank sometimes when i get in it to leave. Something is draining the battery. Please help me?

Hello, i'm confused: you are stating that sometimes "it will turn over but not start up" and then needs jumped. Then you are stating it "won't crank sometimes". It is sounding like 2 separate concerns - a no crank concern and a crank no start concern. Is it both? Have you checked your battery for proper ability to hold a charge and handle a load?
