This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/
well if the altenator is charging it will run after getting a jump, you replied you put a battery charger on it but that dont mean the cold cranking amps are good or it could have a dead cell. I would have the battery tested for sure. If you didnt drive far after jump the altenator may be bad but having the battery charged and still does it tells me it is least likely. If the battery tests good the cables could be corroded under the sheath where you cant see. There are other reasons but from what you have posted sounds like you need a battery most auto stores test them for free (load test also)
While the car is running take off one of the battery cables if the car dies You need to get a new alternater The car runs on the juice from the jump... You probably can't drive far without it going dead
mario, try taking the battery cables completely off and cleaning them.
<:AtomicElement>with a wire brush, put them back on and wait for about 15 min. if it don't start by turning the key over jump it off if the battery is still good it will charge if not you need a new battery. watch your voltmeter on the dashboard while it's running. good-luck, ray
It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.
