To clarify - are you saying it does not crank, or does not start ?
lt sounds like you are saying the engine will crank but not start, but then why would you need to jump the battery if that were true ?
If it cranks but does not start, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking ? The fuel pressure could be low after sitting for a few hours if the check valve in the fuel pump is faulty.
Well if jumping the car starts it but not on its own it is probably one of two things either the battery is not good or the alternator is not charging the battery I would take the car to (of course after jump starting) an auto parts store and do a load test on the battery. they should have the equipment to check without removing the battery. if battery is good try the alternator again they should have equipment to check while still in the car.
try fittung a larger capacity battery this will help when you are parked for extended periods of time, but it does sound as if you have something draining the battery, try getting the alternater checked
This sounds like as if the battery is faulty. You will need to repllace your battery as your current battery is not holding its charge. Another scenario could be that your altenator is faulty, need replaced. Check for the light on your dashboard if it shows the light for the battery then it is your altenator.
