I wouldn't think it was the alternator, if the battery is "green" and it does not crank, it sounds like something else is wrong. It could be a bad connection somewhere or possibly a computer problem. I would check the battery and make sure that it is at least 12+ volts and check all the terminals to make sure that nothing came loose. A loose ground could cause some of the symptoms.

there is a 20 amp fuse under the hood that blew on my 96 stratus that caused the same problem. check that out, maybe the same thing. good luck.

Proper way to jump your car is to attach the jumper cable clamps to the marked posts on your car...on the vehicle that is jumping you, attach the positive clamp to the positive post and the negative clamp to some piece of metal on the vehicle...can even be a screw as long as it sparks a little (grounding). Don't connect the clamp to the negative post.
