Why won't my battery stay charged after a jump?

(1999 Ford Taurus)
in Marshall, MO on February 12, 2010
The battery died, and when I got someone to jump my car it would be charged for only a few blocks before it died again

Could be a bad alternator, battery or a wiring problem. You'll want to get the charging system checked to see where the problem lies. Most shops should be able to do this for a small fee, probably .5 hours of labor, or about $40-$45 in your area.
